Quick Bio:
I started out as a baseball jock all up through High School with great potential, but I over used my shoulder in my last year and surgery ended any hopes of pursuing baseball for a career. After High School I went to College that my mom thought would be best for me and learned how to program and since then I haven’t looked back. Sad of me to have my mom decide what to do huh? Well, it worked out perfect and I couldn’t thank her enough. When I first went to College to learn how to do graphic design and print, the last couple of years earning my Bachelors I started fall in love with programming (and beautiful woman who is now my wife) and have only focused on it since. The programming languages I know are HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL, and Actionscript. And my personal favorite languages are PHP and Actionscript and Javascript.

Now-a-days I just sit in the office and program 6-10 hours a day, listening to music loudly, going to gym to stay in shape (it isn’t good to sit down all day), eat healthy, play ball with my friends on the weekends, and most of all spend play time with the family on the Wii.

Zumspiel (to play)
I am owner and developer for Zumspiel (to play), a flash portal site. Though the site is very new, it has a lot of potential and great strengths. There isn’t anything I can’t do with it. If I am not developing a flash game, or working on clients stuff, I am brainstorming on what to do next and how I can improve Zumspiel in every possible way.

What does Zumspiel mean?
It means to play. Firstly, I was really anxious to start developing my own huge dynamic flash portal site to help developers earn money and to allow users with more features compared to the other flash portal sites out there (I hate earning points and leveling up for nothing, bragging rights ok, but I want a reward of some kind). Secondly, I thought of the name Zumspiel when all the flash portal domain names I could think of were taken. I got so fed up with it I decided to use a foreign word. Let me tell you, there are a lot more options ;)
