My name is Dan White and I was born and raised in the greater Seattle area. I happen to have two middle names, Theodore and Raymond, hence "teddyray.net." Most of my early professional career was in commission sales, repair, and specialty automotive work. Eventually, I became tired of working in those fields and felt them to become too limiting. I decided to pursue a different career more centered on my personal interests in the advancement of technology, marketing, and communication. Web/application development became appealing to me because of the implementation of logic, problem solving, presentation, and creativity. It was a great match, and shares the concepts I enjoyed from my earlier jobs. I am a recent graduate of Seattle Central College's Web Development and Database Administration and Development programs.
