Website
Development

My first website came to life in 2002...

while studying Computer Science at UNCC, and I never looked back. Since then I have gained a wealth of experience creating sites for multiple successful agencies, as well as numerous clients in a variety of industries.

I take a complete, full-stack approach, utilizing creative and responsive design, search engine optimization, social media integration, ecommerce, demand generation, as well as content management integration. And my background in software development allows me to extend functionality, creating dynamic and robust online experiences.

Music

Bass Player/Retired Hip-Hop DJ

I got my first Technics turntables in 1993, and a couple years later was headlining my first band, Hillside Groove, a funk/hip-hop hybrid, performing in local clubs throughout the Charlotte-Metro area.

Shortly thereafter I also picked up the bass guitar, and over the years have collaborated on albums, and performed with multiple bands, including the Dismoir Cove Trio, and Rando Tribe.

I'm currently gigging weekly with Exit 85, the premier 80's and 90's rock cover band in the South Charlotte/Fort Mill areas.
