I've been making websites since I was 13 which is almost 25 years ago. Back when I started it was WebTV and dialup internet, two things kids these days never had to deal with, LOL.

Nowadays, I'm mainly a blogger and a social brand. But I also love forums and trying to learn how to code.

Lover of photography, videography, hiking, cycling, and wildlife.
