The year was 1996. The web was in its infancy and few people knew what they were doing when it came to websites.
I was part of a team that put together a website for Michelle Akers, captain of the U.S. women’s soccer team that won the gold that summer in the Atlanta Olympics.
Four years later I started my own web design company, Green Chair Marketing Group (www.greenchair.net). We’ve been creating websites, marketing on the search engines, and writing content.
My original training was in marketing writing and have been writing, editing, and proofing in web and print for three decades. For the last decade, I’ve been an integral part of Denver’s digital marketing community.
Running a company for 20 years is a long time, but I’ve decided it’s time for me to make a change. I’m pausing Green Chair and am moving toward finding a full-time position with a company or agency.
What I like to do in my free time
There are four things where I spend much of my time: my family, my relationship with Christ, sports, and working with my hands.
Family: My wife, Lori, and I just celebrated 29 of marriage. We have two daughters.
My relationship with Christ: I had a huge transformation in my life between my freshman and sophomore years in college, and have been a dedicated Christ-follower since then. My relationship with Christ is the foundation of how I treat people kindly and honestly, work hard, and have joy missing in many people.
Sports: I have been playing softball with a group of guys for several years where I hold down third base and normally get a couple hits each game. It’s a blast. I also play racquetball a couple of times a week at 5:30 A.M. and have been part of a Master’s swim program for about four years. I also play basketball when I can and am an overly excited Broncos fan.
Working with my hands: I usually have several projects going on in my garage. I just finished repurposing a piano into a wine bar and also refinished a Mid Century Modern dining table. You can see my work at Green Chair Furniture + Art. I’ve also spent a lot of time over the last couple of years whipping my backyard into shape.
