Currently, I am develping page designs and templates that make OWW more user-friendly. I will be collaborating with George Ahunov in improving the functionality of OWW and consistency and efficiency of submitting information. Please feel free to share your feedback in improving these systems to make OWW easier for you.


I also love barbeque. Specifically Kreuz Market bbq in Lockhart, TX.
