Charlie Griefer

Charlie Griefer has been building websites and applications since 1996, which makes him 217 years old in Internet years.

A native of New Jersey, he moved to Phoenix in 1995, where he resided for 10 years before going on a whirlwind tour of the country in search of happiness or something similar. Short stints in Florida, California (lower), and California (upper) ultimately led to his return to Phoenix in 2010.

Charlie is currently a Senior Web Applications Developer at World Singles, where his day-to-day activities include CFML, Clojure, JavaScript, jQuery, MySQL, MongoDB, and grudgingly, some CSS.

When he's not in front of the computer working on code, he can be found in front of the computer playing with code.

When he's not in front of the computer at all, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three children, or trying to survive Krav Maga classes. He infrequently blogs at http://charlie.griefer.com/blog.
