My fascination with computers started really early when my Mom brought me back a Commodore VIC-20 from one of her trips abroad. I immediately fell in love with computers and would spend hours and hours typing lines of code from computer magazines only to run it and notice a mistake I made and had to start all over. Those were the days!
Started my Web Design agency in 1995
I remember staying with my cousin in San Mateo and attending Internet World in 1995. Yahoo had a small booth and Jerry Yang and David Filo were showing off their web directory. I learned about html and websites and I was immediately hooked. This is what I was meant to do. I came back home and told my wife and my family that I was starting a Web Design company. Most of them didn't even know what I was talking about. But I knew this was going to be big!
When I started we used to build sites by hand, page by page using BBEdit. Then PageMill came along and changed everything. We could build sites visually and much more quickly. We started building more and more sites.
Fast forward 26 years and the sheer number of tools to build and manage websites is almost infinite. Many of these tools allow you to build sites visually without writing any html code, almost like PageMill did back in 1995.
