About Troy

I make cool things for cool people.

I was born to build.., started with legos skyscrapers before I could talk, branched into furniture design once i could handle power tools, then started learning computers in junior high, when disks were the size of records. I have a deep love for creativity, innovation and technology, it's the only way the world gets better.

Over my 20 years of professional experience, I've been blessed to work with so many amazing talented people and projects. My work in computer games and education has impacted and been seen by millions of minds, to both better them, and simply have fun.

I am eclectic, speak tech, art, music, marketing, user centered design fluently, as well as understand esotaric backend cloud computing, git, docker, AWS... and on the side occasionally do beatboxing/livelooping or improv theater, arm chair philosophize, small entrprenuer consult.

While I focus on the tech/design/production side, I tend to like to work ON growing businesses rather than working IN them. Which might mean hiring, firing, training, automating production, strategy, reviewing analytics, copywriting/ i think Hemingway said "You can leave anything out, as long as you know what it is".
