A Little Bit About Me


My name is Cruise. I’m an American (Michigan-bred) freelance web developer and brand manager living in Nagoya, Japan.

I began self-teaching myself how to build websites when I was a middle school student back in 2002. Over the past 15+ years, my passion for learning more and improving my skills has continued to grow, and I now have a masters degree in interactive media & website development. In addition to building various brands and developing numerous websites, I have also worked as a university instructor for web development and media analysis.

In my spare time, I enjoy cycling, travelling, and blogging. Check out my blog / YouTube channel Two Wheel Cruise.
