About Knewedge

I Quit My Job

It was early 2008 and I had just left my job as a Cost Accountant.  I was frustrated and didn't plan this career change, but was ready for something different.

I'd been making websites for a few years and decided to start freelancing.  I got a couple of clients early on and that was enough validation for me to stay on this path.

A New Baby

In 2009 I started Knewedge and opened a small office.  Towards the end of 2010 my first little boy was born and after struggling as freelancer for a couple of years I decided I needed a real job again.  I wrapped up a contract with State Farm and a few months later I started working as the Web Producer for the Pantagraph.

A Phone Call

Randomly I got a phone call one day for a new job opportunity.  It's 2011 now and the newspaper industry is obviously hurting.  So, I decided to make the jump and started working at CEFCU as their Web Administrator.


I've now been creating websites for over a decade, everything from web design to server administration.

Also, my family has now expanded to three little boys and a crazy dog.  And, a move to Washington, IL.
