I'm originally from Cherokee, A small town in Northwest Iowa in a valley that the Little Sioux River goes through. I now live in Ankeny, a Suburb of Des Moines with my wife, our daughter, and our beloved Corgi: Casey.
I grew up with interests in art and computer science. I built my first computer when I was 12 and shortly thereafter was building webpages online. My first website was on Geocities and it was a fan site for playstation. I can't remember much of what was on it but I do remember putting some cheat codes up (gathered from other sites).
I dabbled with software and web development through high-school and my early 20s. After a few not fun jobs and a lot of self study, I made a game for the Android platform (Incognito: Interstellar Empire). Then I made another (Maneuvers). Neither was much of a success but It gave me what I needed to pursue a career in Software Development. I re-enrolled in college to finish my bachelors degree. After several failed interviews (and a lack of a portfolio) I managed to get a job as a programmer for a web design/development firm. I worked there for 14 months and found the need to move on. I now work for a Market Research firm (Quester) building surveys and software to support the company and our goals.
