“When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.” Billy Graham

I have always loved technology. From a young age, my hands were often found glued to a keyboard. My venture into the design and internet world started around age 12 when my parents bought their first family Mac – it was a Performa 575. I started designing and learning about this great new thing that was coming…. “The World Wide Web.” After working at a technology firm in Jacksonville from the age of 15-17, a friend (Justin Filoseta) and I started Design Extensions in June of 1999. Since that time, Design Extensions has taken on a life of its own – pulling in clients from dozens of industries all across the United States. While originally I managed all aspects of Design Extension, my current duties include design review, project management, marketing, and making customers smile. When not working on the business, I can usually be found spending time with my wife, Claire, and our five children Hayden, Oliver, Lincoln, Eden and Eva.
