I've been working in web development and software project management for the better part of the last decade. After graduating from college, I worked for a software development magazine and multimedia company in Santa Barbara, CA. I helped create and manage a few large php based websites built on the Joomla content management system. I helped design, build and improve many custom website features including social networks, discussion forums, online directories, lead generation programs, email marketing strategies and much more.
My first company was named "Pacific Media Concepts" and it focused primarily on consulting, online marketing & custom website development. I sold the business to my partner in 2013 and started my second business called Yovigo Inc. soon after.
Since 2014 I've been focused on Yovigo's two products PayWhirl & Yovigo. Both were created with my good friend and co-founder, Brandon Swift, out of Atlanta, GA. Our first product was a free, DIY, website builder called "Yovigo" - Yovigo.com and then we built a recurring payments platform called PayWhirl in 2014 - PayWhirl.com.
I'm a big fan of agile development methodologies & teams.
Let's maximize ROI across multi-channel marketing campaigns.

I grew up just north of Seattle in a town called Lynnwood, WA. I went to college in Santa Barbara, CA at U.C.S.B. and graduated with a B.A. in photography & digital media from another school in town called the Brooks Institute. I have been lucky enough to be apart of the Coachella Music & Arts Festival Film Crew since 2005. Over the last decade i've photographed hundreds of artist's performances including Daft Punk, Kanye West, Madonna, Paul McCartney and many more.
I am a co-founder at Yovigo Inc. We're the makers of PayWhirl Recurring Payments & Yovigo Website Builder (both SaaS products). Our company is based out of Ventura, California and is focused on creating simple yet powerful e-commerce software products. PayWhirl has grown very quickly in the last couple of years and is now my full-time focus.
