It all started with a copy of Netscape Communicator 4.0, eventually leading to a 3.25” floppy housing Allaire Homesite carried from job to job and now onto Atom. After 20 years messing around on the Web, I couldn’t be more excited about where the industry is going with CSS variables and grid. It’s much like encountering DHTML all over again for the first time.

Hobbies

Sitting behind a computer all day can drive any one a bit batty. If I'm not at the gym moving some weight or growing obnoxiously hot chilis, I can be found hiking with my daughter and dogs or enjoying a tasty craft brew on the back deck.
