Born and raised in Australia, I currently reside in Omaha, Nebraska, with my wife Jill and new baby Harper Bronte. I moved to America in 2002, without knowing a single word of American, to play college baseball in a small Texas panhandle town. Although I never learnt how to communicate with the natives I graduated in 2006 and began my career in technology. In the years since graduation, I have worked for IT companies, an advertising agency, real estate developers and currently Optira. Of course, my favorite employer is myself and I have been a freelance web designer for 5 1/2 years now
Here are few things you might want to know about me:

My favorite food is Barbecue Shapes
