About Me From an early age, I have exhibited an intense urge to learn everything I can about anything that has blinking lights, keys, uses electricity, or can be taken apart and turned into something diﬀerent. In recent years, I’ve become more and more fascinated with the principles of graphic design, audio production, and video production. I absolutely love working with computers, connecting them together to enable communication like never before, providing others with the opportunity to experience the magic of technology, and to experience the magic of emotional invocation through video and audio. I take the title of “geek” and wear it proudly and prominently in my life. I believe that everyone has a purpose, and mine is to embrace technology and help it change the world and connect family and friends in ways that were impossibly merely 20 years ago. I’m also an artist at heart and love to express my emotions and help others do the same through multimedia, whether graphics, audio, video, or even mere text. It’s my passion and I love sharing it with others!

My Work History Aerocore Networks - January 2009-present My own personal startup, Aerocore is a side-project web-hosting firm designed to give “normal” people their piece of the internet, while still being able to handle the demands of today’s massive and dynamic websites. Operating on servers kindly shared with another hosting company, we are able to provide highquality service at a low price. Ohio Christian University - August 2008-May 2009 As a Security Oﬃcer for the college, I was responsible for ensuring the safety and security of students, buildings, and all property. This job helped me learn to handle urgent situations where information isn’t always clearly available or accurate, and yet respond successfully and eﬃciently. I was also forced to adapt to situations where plans were frequently changed and adapted to the situation, with little or no warning. Lowe’s Home Improvement - May 2007-May 2009 Wal*Mart Stores - August 2006-December 2006 Working in retail, I was exposed to constant marketing strategies used by the largest retail chains in America. This allowed me to learn and understand the concepts of marketing and sales.
