About Me

Home

I also have interests and stuff...

  • I like to travel. But my job usually requires me to sit behind a desk for long periods of time.
  • I love the challenge of creating and implementing a user experience.
  • My greatest passion outside of the work I do is hockey.
  • I skipped my senior prom because I had a roller hockey game scheduled that night. No regrets there what so ever.
  • I do believe I won that game, 3-2.
  • I love MMA.
  • As with most guys my age and in my industry, I grew up playing video games.
  • I miss my Kitty so very very much.
  • Not only did I understand the end of Lost, but I was fully satisfied by it.
  • Like most Pittsburghers, I think that football is the most popular sport in the world. However, we're thinking completely different sports.
  • I no longer think Twitter is stupid. There are practical uses for it. But most people just aren't that important or interesting to be investing so much effort into it.
  • Favorite movies in no particular order: Blood Sport, Walk Hard, Karate Kid Part III (just the Terry Silver parts)
  • I'm a logo and uniform geek. I take great interest in the asthetics of athletics.
  • I have an insanely huge collection of hockey jerseys.
  • Brunettes, definitely brunettes.
  • My favorite charity is the Mario Lemieux Foundation.
  • Some of my happiest and most rewarding days professionally where when I only had Photoshop open.
