Bio

Back in 1995 – I taught myself how to code websites and by February of 1996 I launched 2 websites. One was a database driven Real Estate website (1st of it’s kind in Eastern WA) and the other was selling used Land Cruiser and Jeep parts. For those that remember those days… This was done on old school 28.8 dial-up modems and using only NotePad on Windows 3.1 – LOL!

After such: I was hooked on coding websites and marketing online so I bought thousands of dollars worth of actual books (this was before digital books were mainstream) – I also physically (before online training was mainstream) went to many training events/seminars all over the West Coast.

My desire and dedication to learn more about the web and eCommerce grew into me creating and launching a full on eCommerce website that was eventually sold to a competitor… PLUS my desire and dedication to learn more about web development and eCommerce landed me some cool jobs at many companies such as Microsoft and Samsung!

Fast forward 22+ years and I have built/edited/managed numerous websites for companies such as: Microsoft, Samsung, T-Mobile, Car Toys, Just Differentials, ProActive Gears and many more.
