Here's a little history for you

A Little Brent Tilton From: 1979 in a city called San Diego. Born, raised, and living.

I build websites. I like rusty colors and things that have been around for a long time. I can't stand it when men wear hats indoors, which I've only recently discovered was something that my grandmother hated as well. My grandmother died several years ago. I miss my grandmother out of the blue and for no reason at all sometimes.

I took all the required English courses in college. In college, they reinforced what I learned in grade school about not referring to oneself as "I" too often and that sentence fragments should also be avoided. My last English course taught me that in real life, articles and literature often use sentence fragments and the first person as a creative way to keep their audience interested and engaged. Following rules for the sake of following rules is boring and stupid, but seemingly necessary at first. Life is better when you get around to learning how to break the rules.

I love math and physics and used to have fun seeing how many different ways I could come up with the formula for a derivative, which I think was a result of me not wanting to memorize the quadratic equation and instead learning how to just derive that too. To this day, if you want to get my attention or engage me in an endless conversation, I would be most happy to discuss nuclear and particle physics, as well as quantum mechanics.

I believe that when combined, calculus and trigonometry create a superpower capable of moving anything anywhere in the universe.

The picture of the kid on this page is really me. I had just messed up a dirt drawing that a girl in my class had made and was hiding behind that tree because I thought she told on me and I was in trouble. I'm not making any of that up. It's one of the few really vivid memories I have when I was that young, and damned if there wasn't a photographer there (the professional kind that gets hired by the school, not the weird guy taking pictures of little kids for no good reason kind) to capture it.

I'm a self taught web developer and I take a lot of pride in what I do. It took a while to figure out what career I needed to follow that ranged from factory metal work to tutoring math to professional artistry and even to a short time in the Army, but now that I'm here, I can say for certain that I absolutely love the combination of web design and development that I do.

I still live in San Diego. I still have the majority of my original artwork from the gallery on this page, and it is still for sale if for some reason you got this far on the page where I go on about random stuff about myself and you're interested in buying something. In the mean time, if you have any questions or otherwise want to contact me, you can do so from the resume page on this site.

... and that's about it for me.
