A long time ago, I worked at Mattel, Inc., in El Segundo, where I was the lead developer behind the first few iterations of HotWheels.com and Barbie.com. I'm listed as a co-inventor on the My Design Barbie patent (#6,206,750) — no, seriously — because I helped design and build the website and backend systems for personalizing the dolls online and communicating with a fulfillment process in China.
Later, I was a lead developer at Channelwave where I helped create customized web e-commerce systems for major manufacturers like HP, Sony, Toshiba, Maxtor, Western Digital, Sharp, Kia Motors, ATI, Hawk Clothing, Logitech, Lexmark, and many others. Then I started freelancing.
I have a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UC Irvine.
I contributed to the O'Reilly book Flickr Hacks. I'm also a published photographer with photographs in JPG Magazine Issue 7, Flickr Hacks by Jim Bumgardner & Paul Bausch, How to Use Flickr by Richard Giles, Create Your Own Photo Blog by Catherine Jamieson, Digital Photography and Lighting by Catherine Jamieson & Sean McCormick.
