I started my career in web design and development in 2006 and have been honing my craft little-by-little since then.
Born and raised in Michigan, I attended college and lived in Florida, and made my way back to Michigan to enjoy the wonderful lakes and summer experience. I've lived here ever since.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and pets, reading, keeping up with politics, woodworking, home improvement projects, and sipping a fine craft beer.
I’ve had *something* at this domain since 2005, running through various iterations of content management systems with my content focused on a personal portfolio or blog. Prior to the switch to Vue/Nuxt I had a self-hosted WordPress installation.
For professional development reasons in 2019, I made the **JAMstack** switch to learn the approach and that’s where it stands today. This site is available publicly on my GitHub, and you’re welcome to fork it and use it as a basis to build your own.
Unfortunately, I really only archived the most recent version of my Nuxt-based site. That was built with Nuxt 2. The rest of these are internet archive representations. And to be quite honest, they didn't capture everything back to 2005 and styles weren't saved with the pages until about 2010.
