I am the owner of Social Catnip Web Development and Digital Marketing company.
We are a proud Veteran-Owned company.
I’m a web developer and based in Santa Maria, CA. I am married with 2 kids.
I love the outdoors and spending time teaching my kids about nature. I like to take care of my family and build websites as my full time job.
I joined the Marine Corps when I was 18. I deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 2. When I returned home I worked as a Police Officer for 15 years. I injured my back at work which caused me to retire. After my injury, I struggled to figure out what to do next with my life. I decided to attend UCLA Web Development Bootcamp and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. I have been since working as a web developer and online marketer since. I had the chance to make some awesome projects while at UCLA and as a Freelance web developer. Feel free to check them out.
I began teaching myself web-developing skills in late 2016 and began taking on freelancing jobs in late 2017. I love learning and perfecting my craft. Since then I have help business improve their SEO and collaborate on business strategies to pursue while providing them with my skill set.
I look forward to working on projects where I can, not only apply my skills, but also continue growing as a developer. For fun, I play video games, board games, Dungeons & Dragons, and adventure outdoors. I challenge my self physically by competing in obstacle course races such as Spartan Races, going on long difficult hikes, mountain biking and boxing. I love to read and learn from people who inspire me. Some of my favorite books are Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink and The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris. I have been described by friends as motivating because I never give up and don’t let them give up on goals and challenges set in front of us.
After College I worked as an analyst for Johnson & Johnson traveling all over the USA and coming up with business strategies to increase revenue and inventory turnover. I lead a team of 18 professionals and designed and implemented strategies and methods to meet our goals. Since then I have helped businesses improve their SEO and collaborate on business strategies to pursue while providing them with my skill set. I look forward to working on projects where I can, not only apply my skills, but also continue growing as a developer.
