Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.

I push pixels. Keystrokes and mouse clicks are my thing.

I get my thrills putting digital flesh to the bones of brand and marketing. And, like most in my craft, I have drunk the Apple Kool-Aid and affirmed—it is good.

For me, G-Rap is forever home; I love the creative communities it fuels and believe in its future. So much so that in 2007, my wife and I opened Pure Salon and are blessed to own a thriving local business, complete with a crazy-talented team and loyal clients.

My greatest joy comes from loving, leading, and serving four amazing ladies: my beautiful wife Jackie and our three adorable girls, Hayla, Chloe and Lucy. I love late-night dates downtown to sample our cities newest culinary establishments, poker nights with my boys and finding new places in my closet to store my ever-expanding shoe collection.

Maximum amount days I can go without getting a haircut.
The number of pairs different colored shoe laces I have in my collection.
