Ziggy and Me

A Little About Me

I began painting with oils full time in 2014, preferring a loose, painterly brush stroke or palette knife. Previously, since 2001, I created websites, focusing on front-end development and user experience in the application interface. I spend most of my free time with my little rescue horse, Ziggy, who I adopted in 2003.

I also like:


I began lifting weights at 15, and at 18 got second place in a bodybuilding competition. I was a muse and model for a local photographer through my 20s and 30s, and a perpetual college student; changing majors from marine biology, to mechanical engineering, and finally passionately succumbing to computer science. My first career-related job was as a wide-area network engineer with NASA in Huntsville, AL. After two years, I quit to move to Atlanta, GA to race motorcycles at club level for three years. It was there I taught myself web design, then front-end web development and a little back-end development as well. I gave up racing to adopt my dream horse, a little Arabian from Houston, TX that would become my muse in life. I became an empathetic horseman, with my horse as my teacher, and myself the perpetual student once again.
