I Was Born a Rebel I grew up in western New York on the Seneca Nation of Indians reservation. I knocked out my front teeth multiple times. I spent the majority of my childhood creating the best bike ramps and playing whiffle ball with my neighbors. My first job was working at McDonalds and I will be forever grateful for the work ethic I learned while working there. I Follow My Dreams After high school, I followed my dreams and attended Penn State (and first heard of stores called “Walmart” and “Starbucks” during that time). After graduating with two degrees (American Studies and History) I moved out to Chicago to pursue my career. I commuted downtown for just shy of eight years until I started my own web development company so I could work from my home and spend as much time with my family as possible. I am married with three kids, one dog, and two cats. I Play to Win I love to play any game (and win), have gotten a hole in one in golf, and outside of work can be found with boxing gloves on or on the Peloton leaderboard as “ForeverRebel”. I Am Obsessed With Music I listen to music almost all day everyday and love any opportunity to see my favorite artists live. I make killer playlists and pride myself in finding newly released music. Most of the songs in my playlist are by artists that you have never heard of. About This Site This site is built using WordPress with the Lucidity theme by my consulting company SDAC Inc.
