I am a certified computer nerd and love all things related to technology. I started using my mom's computer when I was only 5 years old and have been addicted ever since. I started taking website design and development classes at University of the Pacific when I was 12. By the time I was 13, a friend and I had built and ran a video game message board with over 13,000 registered users. After passing the California High School Proficiency Examination at 16, I began taking courses at my local community college. I transferred to California Polytechnic San Luis Obispo when I was 18 and graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Systems Management. During my time at Cal Poly, I learned about a wide variety of subjects including project management, CAD drafting, 3D modeling, and even electronic control systems.
Throughout my college years, I built websites for small businesses in the area and helped them optimize their web presences. After graduation, I moved to San Jose, California and worked briefly as a Marketing Manager for a home automation company before being hired as a web consultant by NextMedia360, an interactive media company owned by Next Media radio group. In this role, I served as a hybrid web designer, web developer, and search engine optimization consultant. I met with radio advertisers and helped them with the "pull" aspect of their push/pull marketing strategy in order to maximize their returns on their advertising campaigns. I enjoyed meeting with clients to discuss their web needs so much, that I decided to follow my passion and start my own company.
