Your AKO Alternative



I’ve gotten asked a lot why I would spend hours developing a site like this. It’s something I like doing on the side. Some spend money on car parts, others spend it traveling. I spend it on this

I took both web and graphic design courses in grade school when it was still cool to developed websites with Adobe Dreamweaver and we didn’t have AI to manipulate images in Photoshop. Ever since I’ve only helped friends and family set-up their own sites, usually with WordPress.


I try to maintain this site as best as I can. Outside of the Army I try to spend as much time as possible out and about with the family. We’re always on the move both professionally and for leisure. Forgive me if I do not response to your inquires right away.
