About

I Love front-end/UI development, interactive design, latest technologies, burritos, the 80's (movies & music), anything vintage / retro, American History, 90's hip-hop / rap, classic rock, oldies, 20's jazz, modern blue grass, and my family. I Like to be courteous, punctual, to laugh, to look out windows, people watching, binge watching a series. Everything else is fine.
