|All the custom software and web sites that I am working on these days (while I'm working at Stark State College) belong to Code Contractors. Technically I have been offering similar services online since 2003 under Luminescent Services, but it wasn't late 2005 that I sit down with a couple of my peers and formed Code Contractors. Plus the name Code Contractors has history going back to 2002.
|Luminescent Sounds DJ Service
| I have provided services as a DJ for over 10 years as Luminescent Sounds DJ Service.
In 2005 I added a partner, Steven Friedrichsen, to Luminescent Sounds, in order to allow me to focus more
on my Computer Programming Path. Luminescent Sounds DJ Service treated me well over the years helping me pay my way through
college in a enjoyable fashion. I discontinued the business to allow me to focus on my career in software development.
|Black Orc Games
||2004 & 2005
| Black Orc Games is a small game manufacturing
company located in Massillon Ohio. I was briefly and lightly
involved with a 10% ownership. I sold my partnership back
to the other owners in 2005. I regret the loss of time I could
have spent towards Code Contractors, but the experience of
seeing how others handle business was important to my personal growth.
With that in mind I do not have any regrets buying or selling
my part in Black Orc Games.
|Damage Master Gaming
||1995 & 1996
While I was a senor in high school I open a small retail stand at Canton Center Mall,
and sold mainly Collectable Card Games. Despite the fact the stand wasn't a great success:
I am glad I had the opportunity to experience owning a retail business so early in life.
