The Short Story Of Seth’s Leadership Life Born in the small town of Navado, California, I was brought to the earth at 9 pounds 11 ounces. Shortly after my second birthday I was moved to Arizona. I bounced around different parts of the technology world until I found that I have a unique talent in Web Development, Digital Marketing, and internet application services. I now spend my days as a web developer and my weekends as a golfer and father.


Seth’s Vision

Many people are uncomfortable with new technology, but we are starting to breach the learning gap in all generations. Coming into the information age, I want to make technologies “work for people” instead of people “working at technology”. I’m an efficiency nut and I use website development and online services to automate things that used to be tedious and cumbersome.
