My Playing Career

I am originally from Newton, IA.  I grew up playing any sport I could.  I started playing YMCA soccer at 5 years old, flag football and basketball at 9.  I also started tee ball at 5 and baseball was always my favorite sport.  For soccer, I got involved with NASA, the Newton Area Soccer Association, […]

Tagxedo

I heard about Tagxedo.com on Net@Night from the twit.tv network and figured I had to try it.  It is actually pretty neat.  You can plug in different websites, twitter ID’s and search terms to create a neat tag cloud of the words you use.  Here’s an example of mine.  I uploaded a graphic and adjusted […]
