My wife is self-admittedly a terrible decision maker. She always looks fantastic, but many times it takes her awhile to fully emerge from the closet.

My time at Frontier Web Development was a lot of fun, and I learned a ton! We had a wonderful group of people, we increased revenue every year, and we even added staff every year. We built great systems for our clients and great systems for our own use as well. https://www.facebook.com/FrontierWebDev gives a basic idea of how we operated. Continue reading
