My name is Lance. I have a wife, Amy, and a cat, Coal, and we all live together in Sharon, PA. I’ve got some real talent with technology and I’m pretty good with business. In fact, I even own a company that is completely dedicated to building business technology, CubicleTwo, Inc.. My wife is great and is super-supportive of my business and the things I do. On the other hand, my cat can be a real jerk about it. I guess you can’t have everything.
I love development.
There is nothing so gratifying as writing code that makes what was previously impossible, possible. I have helped companies take an outdated, abandoned inventory system and tie it into their website so it shows real-time product quantities. I have helped build web applications from the ground-up that do things that no one ever thought could happen. I am constantly learning new languages and frameworks to add to my arsenal so that I can continue to be at the top of my game.
I love design.
Drawing and expressing ideas through illustrations and design has always come naturally to me. A website must effectively communicate the culture of an organization or it’s an inaccurate representation. Most of what I do is, ultimately, about the presentation of information. If my design puts that information front-and-center, makes it attractive and makes it easy to understand, then I have succeeded.
I love helping businesses.
I will never forget when one of my clients came to me and said “Lance, we increased our online revenue by 50% this year because of our new website”. I will never forget when another said “our clients have been asking us for that for years and you just made it happen”. I remember the first time a new couple walked into my church and said they found our church’s website and it looked like the place for them. When I see the fruits of my labor help an organization succeed, I know that I’m doing my job.
I love being an entrepreneur.
Aside from owning my own tech firm, I also am involved in several start-ups and serve as a technology consultant to many businesses. I love the idea of being a part of building something and watching it grow. There are wins and losses, successes and failures, but the hope of creating something bigger than myself is always worth it all.
