What is your role at Mainsail Creative?
I am a designer, developer and co-founder at Mainsail Creative. I do everything from from UI/UX design to front-end coding to back-end CMS modifications. Recently I’ve been working on a lot of WordPress customizations for clients’ marketing departments, allowing them to manage their site in a more intuitive way.

I went to CSU, Chico majoring in Music Industry & Technology. Later I found myself in Silicon Valley doing Marketing and managing corporate websites. I taught myself how to build the sites I was managing which led me to what I am doing today.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Surfing, hiking, playing guitar, recording music, bike rides. I spend a lot of time in the ocean or the forest with my dog. I also run a recording studio, Anchorhead Recording, when I find the time.
