The "Hat Man"

Personal History: I graduated from Georgia Tech in 2003 and was married two weeks later to my beautiful wife Jess. We have four children; our youngest was recently added to our family through adoption.

Work History: After college I went into vocational ministry. In my early twenties I worked as a Youth Minister at several churches, then as a Community Minister. During this time I also worked for myself as a professional web designer in order to supplement our income. In our late twenties my wife and I pursued aspirations of planting a church in Decatur, and it was during the beginning of this journey, while interning at West Ridge Church, that I met Aaron. The church plant didn’t go as planned, but during that time, my website business grew steadily. During this time I also worked more and more with Aaron and then in late 2009 we formed Sideways 8 Interactive.

Web Development History: I created my first website on geocities in the early 90’s when most people didn’t know the difference between the internet and AOL. Then I moved into writing my own HTML websites or modifying templates (it was still early development years so cut me some slack). Later I moved into some flash development, but ultimately found that I didn’t like flash. After meeting Aaron I started developing sites from scratch (thanks for setting me straight, Aaron) and using WordPress to power the sites, which is what we still do today.

Nerdy Things I Love: PHP, HTML, CSS, WordPress, studying about all things previously listed, playing my hammered dulcimer.

Other Things I Love: Spending time with my family, taking classes at Gordon-Conwell, spending time with my church family, blogging, reading, and sitting by a good fire.

I blog about digital marketing here, and about productivity, habits and leadership at adamjwalker.com.
