I have a lot of things I enjoy doing, and I feel very lucky to be able to do one of those things for work everyday. I spent almost 10 years working in the construction industry as a General Contractor building homes, and I am often asked how it is that I now work in web development and IT consulting, as they seem so different. However, I find the creative and problem solving processes to be very similar, and that is probably one of the reasons I enjoy doing this so much. I love seeing something that can be fixed; something that can be made better, and then to make a plan, implement it, and see the result. It is not too dissimilar from taking an idea for a house from your head to paper and then to reality.

I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints to the Arizona Tucson Mission where I learned to speak Spanish. I have a wonderful wife and four children, two boys and two girls. I love the Idaho outdoors and I appreciate the close proximity of many outdoor sports. When I am not working, I enjoy golfing, mountain biking, skiing, fly fishing, and, most of all, spending time with my family.

My speciality is IT Consulting: identifying problems or weaknesses and then architecting and recommending a solution. I code all of the custom sites for Aptitude by hand using PHP, HTML, XML, Javascript (jQuery), and CSS. I have spend a lot of time using Linux and Mac OS X, but can also use Windows. I have a degree in Business Management. Go Boise State!
