I "built" my first sites in the 90s by copying and pasting HTML from other sites. Over the years I've experimented with a wide variety of site builders and frameworks with varying levels of skepticism and frustration.

I started my processional animation career in 7th grade by selling DIY flip-books made from sticky pads to fellow students for $1 each. Later my brother and I got ahold of our dad's Sony Hi-8 Handycam™ and started making stop motion animations with action figures, clay, Legos, and whatever props we could find.
Eventually, my passion for video went digital and eventually had my animation work broadcast on Nickelodeon's Yo Gabba Gabba featuring the music of the Decemberists.
