Steve grew up mostly in De Pere, WI. In high school, he acquired a second-hand computer that was already 5 years ancient. He immediately started programming in C/C++, used it to get online and actually met his future wife online in 1997.
After high school, he moved to Madison and earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems from Herzing College. Steve has 12+ years of PHP, JS, HTML, CSS, SQL, Bash, and maybe even some other acronyms.
Since graduating, Steve has concentrated on developing dynamic custom and CMS-driven Websites and applications, using a plethora of ever-changing web technologies.
Outside of work, Steve enjoys working on his 1901 Queen Anne Victorian home, gardening with his wife, welding custom bicycles and garden art, restoring and driving his 1969 MG Midget and playing the Ukulele.
