Ethics.

I am a huge believer in the K.I.S.S. Method, and not only in keeping it simple but keeping things truthful. My career as a designer/developer began at Pacific Sunwear on 9/11/01 (crazy, I know), and has slowly evolved from simple print design, and flash animation to creating full applications, and involving myself in operations of non-profits. I have always told those close to me, that I would make a terrible salesman, because I often tell the truth. By this I mean, I will tell you what is needed to make it right from the beginning.

From Fortune 500 companies to small, single person businesses, I enjoy solving and simplifying the process to create a great product or service. Currently, I am involved in a plethora of start up environments from Prescriptive Analytics at Compellon, to a global community of doctor’s congregating with other experts at DocMatter, to my phenomenal friends/app building extraordinaires/hackathon team mates at Omega Ortega; I have been blessed to be surrounded by a wealth of talent that has molded me.

Outside of the building that I do, I have a beautiful family and enjoy being able to participate in a massive amount of activities, such as coaching and helping to start my own non profit at Iwao! By the way, you can find me at: LinkedIn.
