Experience

I've been working in web development and management for the better part of the last decade. After college, I worked for an online magazine and multimedia company in Santa Barbara, CA. I helped create and manage a few large php based websites built on Joomla's content management system (CMS). I helped design, build and improve many custom website features including social networks, forums, directories, lead generation funnels, email marketing strategies and much more.

After a few years of hacking away, I managed to pick up a little php / javascript and climbed the ladder until I became a software development manager. Eventually the business was acquired and I decided it was time to start my own business.

My first company was called Pacific Media Concepts and focused primarily on consulting, marketing & custom website development. I sold the business to my partner in 2014 and started a new business shortly thereafter called Yovigo Inc..

Lately i've been focused on PayWhirl.com & Yovigo.com. Both were created with my good friend Brandon Swift from Atlanta, GA. We started off with a free DIY website builder called Yovigo in December 2013 (Yovigo.com) and then built a recurring payments platform called PayWhirl in August 2014 (PayWhirl.com).
