Philosophy:

I don't believe there is only a single right way to do any project. Each solution has it's benefits and weaknesses. I believe the best solution must consider what is the best platform or language, and then consider performance, stability, security, usability, development time/resources needed, flexibility of future needs, and readability / maintainability. Anything is possible given enough time and resources, but that doesn't make it practical. There is a place where a balance can be found that addresses all of these things and often must come at the cost of some concessions. I proudly stand behind every line of code I write and every system I design with my name on it, but I'm also constantly improving and learning better ways. Perfection should always be the goal, but with the understanding that it's an illusion that can never be reached. Listening and understanding new possibilities is the only way one grows and grows those around them.


Additional Training:

A two year graduate with honors from Sevier Vally Technical College, with a degree in architectural design and AutoCAD drafting. I also helped write the syllabus for the upper level solid modeling and wire frame classes as a teachers aid, a position I held for 16 months while attending. Familiar and worked with all aspects of architectural, plumbing, electrical, structural, and mechanical drafting and design.


I’ve had four years of directly applied Commercial Advertising and fine art, as well as another 12 years of design for advertising fliers for special events, web graphics, and other odds and ends. My fine art has won several awards and have been in art shows such as the Springville Art Show (state wide art show for Utah), where I received a Best of Show in 'pen and ink' and a Masters in 'pencil'. I’ve comfortably used many mediums such as pen and ink, pencil, acrylic, oil, pastels, and chalk to name a few. Around 1992 switched to doing all art on computers using various programs. This experience has great helped in creating intuitive UI design and functionality, as well as overall presentation of page content.


I also have an associates in psychology from Salt Lake Community College in Utah, with a minor in electronics. I continually explore and learn new technologies, methods, languages, and improvements on all aspects of programming and development.
