I’m one of the founders of B² Interactive. My area of expertise is in web design and software development, and I head up the web development department for B² Interactive.
I was born in Marengo, Iowa, but grew up in Kahoka, Missouri, and Keokuk, Iowa. I studied computer sciences at Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, Iowa, before moving to Omaha.
Omaha was supposed to be a stepping stone between small town Iowa communities and a much larger city, but like so many, leaving Omaha after you fall in love with the city is tough to do. Omaha has proven to have as much opportunity as any other place I could’ve settled, and my wife Emily and I are excited to raise our family here. We have two young boys, Roman and Cruz, who are full of energy. We are expecting a daughter at the end of 2015, who I’m guessing will not enjoy mixed-martial-arts training with dad as much as Roman and Cruz do.
I started my career in technology here in Omaha at a larger corporation and quickly realized that corporate life wasn’t the life for me. After leaving the corporate world in the early 2000s, I started several companies, all with technology at their core. Building and nurturing a successful business isn’t for everyone, but it is one of the things I’m most passionate about.
When we build websites for clients, we know that they’re expected to work, not just in terms of functionality, but also in serving the needs the business owner has.
Over the last 20 years, I have worked with, designed, and developed hundreds of websites and software applications. Throughout this time, I’ve worked on many small projects for local businesses along with national projects with intensive development work. Each and every one of these projects is unique in its own way, and that’s something I embrace about what I do. No two days are ever the same.
When we build websites for clients, we know that they’re expected to work, not just in terms of functionality, but also in serving the needs the business owner has. As a web developer, I take pride in having a great attention to detail, and I take every measure to make sure that each website does exactly what it’s supposed to do and meshes well with the digital marketing strategies our company has developed to accompany the supporting technology.
Starting B² Interactive has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me. Having several companies under my belt has helped tremendously in avoid many of the business pitfalls you can’t see coming until you’ve experienced them firsthand. The business experience our team has is one of the things we can bring into our client’s projects as well, and it’s why I think we’ve been so successful in building websites and digital marketing solutions that are truly beneficial to our clients.
As rewarding as business can be, my first priorities will always be faith and family. Emily and I are thankful for the extended family we have at Brookside Church here in Omaha, and our free time is often filled playing with our children and spending time with the many wonderful friends we have.
