Bio

UI/UX Designer. Owner of Black Spot Design agency. Based out of Dallas, TX. I’m a father of three and a grandfather to two. I’m on a mission to “Make the Web Creative Again”!

Interests

Building a more creative web. More and more sites are so predictable. I would like to see a movement of creatives making sites without any boundaries. Not sure how that works, but I’m ready for a new thing!

WordPress Origin Story

I started designing websites in 1999. HTML. Netscape. Who the heck is Google? So four years later, I just heard about WordPress through a friend, and he talked about the community, and it’s free, and he kept going on. I was sold. I knew it was a game-changer. So I dove in and started learning. Fast forward 15 years, I’m still using it and my design agency builds our client’s sites on it. It’s more robust and powerful than ever. It’s still a top-notch product. Always has and it will probably always be that way.
