I've been working in digital media and developing on the internet 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 / manage a few large php based websites built on the "Joomla" content management system (CMS). I worked mostly on the front-end in the CMS and helped build and maintain many custom features including social networks, forums, lead generation software, email marketing and much more.
My first company was called Pacific Media Concepts LLC 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 the new company, I created the business with my good friend Brandon Swift (software engineer) and we built two software as a service (SaaS) products in our first year. We created a free DIY website builder called Yovigo in December 2013 (Yovigo.com) and a recurring payments platform called PayWhirl in August 2014 (PayWhirl.com).

I grew up just north of Seattle in a town called Lynnwood, WA. I went to college in Santa Barbara, CA at UCSB and ended up with a degree in photography from 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 founder of Yovigo Inc. (the makers of PayWhirl.com & Yovigo.com). Our company is based out of Santa Barbara California and we build / market products & services online. Our companies focus is eCommerce and both our products help people sell online. PayWhirl is for recurring payments and Yovigo is a DIY store and website builder.
