What’s your average day like at Oneupweb?

I begin every day by reading about the latest technology or programming trends to help make my brain bigger. Then I code until it’s time to eat. I laugh for about an hour eating with my co-workers and then return to the codes.

Tell us about a favorite Oneupweb moment in general?

When I found out the things they do here to take care of their staff. Every-other-Friday off in the summer is probably my favorite. It’s unreal. I usually spend so much time working that going out and doing things is hard to find time for. Either that or finding out we get a Ferris Bueller day (a day off to do whatever you want) every year, which is pretty sweet.

What’s your favorite blog and why?

Medium. I entered in everything that I am interested in, and they “handpick” selections for me. It knows what I want to read, and then I read it. It’s win-win for me.

What makes Traverse City appealing?

It’s beautiful here. I have an incredible group of people around me. My wife and I really like our neighborhood and the school our son goes to.

What do you really do at Oneupweb?

I write code. Or I’m reading new ways to write code. Or I’m learning new ways to write code. But mostly code. I do a lot of coding.

What do you do when you’re not at work?

I do have side projects that I am coding for just for fun at home – either to learn new skills or just to level up. My wife and I are pretty involved with our church, so if we aren’t there, we are probably out with our friends or families somewhere. I grew up downstate, so we like to go down there. It all depends on the season. We are going to have a baby any day now, so it may be pretty different for a little while.

If you were stuck on a desert island, what office tool would you bring, and how would you make your deadline?

A laptop. I could write everything locally and then transfer it over when I get home.

What’s the last song you intentionally listened to?

“Mercy” by Amanda Cook.

Favorite Spotify station?

Minivan Music … I have kids, but …

What’s your secret guilty pleasure?


Favorite tv show.

TV Show: “Abandoned” on VICELAND.

Tell us something weird/unique/quirky about yourself.

Watch this video I helped make.

Describe yourself in 3 to 5 words.

unique, hyper, dreamer

What’s one of life’s simple pleasures?

Any time my wife plays with my hair. Watching my son play outside with his friends.

The internet is listening: give us your words to live by.

Schedule first what matters most.
