I'm Ed. I currently live in Kingsport, TN, a small
town seemingly in the middle of nowhere. I was born here 17 years
ago, but since I have moved several times. My first move came at
the age of nine, when I moved to Zug, Switzerland. I was able to
experience an entirely different culture and expand my view of the world.
At the age of 13 I moved from Switzerland to The Hague in the Netherlands.
After two and a half years there I returned to Tennessee. Each move
has taught me the importance of maintaining an open mind.
My family purchased our first computer when I was seven, and from that
moment on, I was using it for a variety of tasks. I remember learning
to program simple games in basic and using dos. I became interested
in the internet in the eighth grade, when I decided to build my own website.
From that moment on my interest in designing media for the web has simply
At school I play tennis, and participate in a variety of activities.
But none of that makes me who I am. I am not interested in computers
because of the technology, or because they especially appeal to me.
Instead I am fascinated by the way computers allow me to communicate with
the rest of the world. Twenty years ago a high school student would
be ignored, if he tried to share his viewpoint on an issue. The internet
is blind to a person's age, or race, leaving simply their ideas.
This concept is what draws me to computers and the internet.
This is who I am and why I did this. Feel free to email me at
