With 10 years of WSP experience, I provide a lot of quotes for development, resolve a lot of random issues and some high level tickets, and code a lot of the business-critical server-side objects. I also write technical plans for object development.
I started at Website Pipeline when I was quite a "green" developer and I had only been married for a few years and had 2 kids. I now have my 7th child on the way and my wife and I are seeking to be obedient to the call of Jesus Christ by spreading the Truth of the Gospel. We are doing this in Utah where I work remotely full-time from home.
Working for Website Pipeline has been one of the greatest blessings in my life besides being married and being a father. Brian Seidel and Eric Ward have played a significant role in helping me become a better programmer and allowing me to be "Mr. Incredible" for my family.
What's the funniest thing that has happened at Website Pipeline?
Nerf attack initiation for a group of new hires; a-capella version of "Afternoon Delight" by another group of new hires; Slandy doing "What Does the Fox Say" at a Trade Show (I didn't see it live). Any other stories I can think of probably shouldn't be listed on the website.
Which movie or TV character would you be if you could choose?
Mr. Incredible - while I long for super strength, what I admire about him is his ability to remain a family man (or at least his pursuit of it) while still saving the world.
Tell us about a cool celebrity encounter you've had
Only one... and I'm not sure it qualifies as "cool", but about 12 years ago I met Sinbad at a Vegas hotel while checking in for a Super Bowl party.
What's your favorite hobby?
Wood working - I'm no master carpenter, but I love building things from recycled wood (old pallets or torn down fences). I get to do it outside after being inside at my desk for work and wood is much more forgiving than code that makes it to production. :)
