Now living in Florida, I can say I have lived in all four corners of the country and the Midwest. I consider Colorado more of a home than anywhere else. Also, I’ve been to 33 of the 50 states and been on more road trips than I can count.

What do you do at NetSource Technologies, and how long have you worked there?
I started as a web designer in August 2014.

When did you become interested in art and design?
Looking back, I have been interested in it my whole life, but it took me until my Junior year of college that I realized I should pursue graphic design.

When did you become interested in creating websites?
Through school I realized that print graphic design is completely infuriating to me (printers hate me,) so I gravitated more towards web design. After I graduated, I started teaching myself HTML and CSS and realized it came very easily to me and that I really enjoy it.

What is your favorite part of creating a new website?
Definitely seeing the finished product. Seeing something that I created and being able to say “I made that.” Taking pride in my hard work is the most satisfying part of web design for me.

Do you have any hobbies?
I play the guitar. I also tinker around with 3D programs like Maya and Blender. I am also working on building my own tablet.

What are your top three moments of your life so far?
Number 1 would definitely be graduating college. Completing my own home-built computer would rank up there too.

What is your favorite color?

What is your favorite musician or type of music?
Rock music mostly. Classic Rock or newer stuff. Jimi Hendrix, Social Distortion, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins. Movie scores are also good work music for me if I am trying to concentrate. There’s a much longer list of music I don’t like.

What is your favorite sport? Do you have a favorite team?
I like hockey and football but I don’t have a favorite team. I used to play hockey back in the day.

What are your favorite TV shows?
Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, The Twilight Zone (old school), and  plenty of others.

What are your favorite movies?
I like most movies. I really can’t stand chick flicks or musicals, but other than that I like just about anything.

Twitter or Facebook? (and why)
Neither. I could rant for days about both, but I’ll spare you.

Tell us about your family!
My mom lives in Colorado Springs, my dad lives in Phoenix, my sister is outside of Sacramento (and is recently engaged), and the rest of my extended family lives in Buffalo, NY.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Definitely Europe. England, Ireland, Germany, Italy.
