What is MarvelHawk?

MarvelHawk is a web designer and developer, who has been building websites for clients since 1996. Focused on usability and efficiency, a choice that will give you a product that is tailored to your customer. Ever have developer ask to learn and work the specification rather than conceptulize the problem and give you a digest? Marvelhawk will walk in your shoes to understand the issues you face, rather than just pack in the latest buzz for you.

Why MarvelHawk?

For one Hawk is part of the developer's name and quite naturally marvelous. Considering the domain was available a few years ago it certainly matched.

Marvel Hawk History 1

In 1996 started HTML coding in High School. Google was not even a name, let alone a browser, an operating system, a web application platform. Very few features in the early web, Java applets and flash were the cutting-edge technology of the day. This was the website that started it all under my own name. In 1998 I was asked if I was interested in working for the Oregon Public Education Network innovating a piece of technology that would showcase what the internet could do for education. I gladly accepted the invitation.

Math Man

Mathman was that innovation. This tiny image is all I can find of that website called MathMan. A tutorial website on Mathematics and also a few strategy games built as of course Java Applets! This particular website earned me a scholarship out of high school and my Computer Science destiny was set.

While attending college in 2000 I took on a volunteer work as I didn't have time to fully devote to another company, even working for LSI Logic as a 40+hours a week, going to college full time, I managed to learn flash and design and develop intros for who helps children with AIDs. Built Life line Peer Support a CRM for a suicide prevention hotline, and helped a fellow Labradoodle breeder developer a strong web presence..

Even with the work load in 2002 I managed to graduate with a degree and honors.

After doing my studies I went into yield data systems engineering for LSI Logic during which I was awarded the companies' highest Bravo award and earned two patents for software I built. ARPS which is Automated for Reporting Passdown Systems and a process I developed for pad conditioning for APEC Chemical-Mechanical Planerizers.

Starting in 2007, I developed a tutorial website and blog under the name Hawk Enterprises. I continued to create websites for clients as well as build my own network of websites. Despite working in the cutting edge of industry for LSI Logic, folks of the older generation were still calling the internet a 'fad'. Certainly hilarious today, but the juxtaposition during that era made talking to anyone outside the industry difficult at best. Thankfully business minded folks saw the future of innovation. This is where I got to add the big names of Nike, Intel, and Hewlett Packard to my list of clients.

2011, After a decade of work consolidation under a different name with a small footprint was ideal. Hence GRX3 was started. Working my client base and building on more on the development side rather than focusing on design. Game development, building and marketing actual web applications and still blogging and building out the network of sites. This is also when we branched out globally approaching clients through what now are readily available freelance/gig type sites. I now had access to clients in countries that years ago couldn't of even thought of reaching. Building realty shops for Bulgarians, Process Ecommerce for Indonesians, Design shops in Israel. Truly made the world closer to my fingertips and felt more connected.

2012, The world was suppose to end, or so said the Mayan Calendar. We instead double downed on the internet, banking over 100 domains that year. Domain harvesting was in, building micro-sites were the thing, and trying to turn money via ad revenue through Google and Yahoo. I as many developers had, turned to auto-content, quick install Adsense ready Wordpress sites attempting to capture keyword niches and mine untapped ad revenue. Lots of writing of data scrapers to mine premium content and insert/stuff keywords and random content into pages to hopefully get search engines to recognize it as original and thus an authority on the subject.

2014, After two decades of design, developing, and marketing, it was time to take a break. GRX3 became the brand for a Minecraft network. Devoting all my resources, effort, and abilities in just a few short months we went from a tiny little server to #1 Minecraft Network in many categories. Lots of games, custom modifications, servers, staff, and data.

Shortly after 2015 GRX3 Minecraft Network went away, and I took a break entirely from anything technological. During this time practiced my traditional art skills, took long walks, and just did my best to live free of computers, phones, and anything doing with technology.

After two years, unplugged, it was time to get back to what I did best. In 2017 MarvelHawk is started. Entirely unknown about it's Marvel Comic book competitor, we soon gained rank against Hawk eye. Marvel Hawk is and was going to be our web design and development business front end. It was not long until we had clients again.

2018 Marvel Hawk is under way, working in software engineering. Marvel Hawk lends itself once again to GRX3 under the Minecraft. Developing PHP based daemons that work for all of Mojang's Minecraft and delivering to the community another way to manage their servers.

2019 Started working with ComScore as a Data Associate. Shortly after was internally promoted to other duties under the same title, and in under a year was promoted to Lead of International. As Lead of International I also started to develop software to track phone calls, error tracking and analysis, data reporting, as well as document control.

2020 Still working with ComScore, MarvelHawk takes on other clients as well. Developing eCommerce, Wordpress, and many other pre-packaged software designs and templates. Focusing on the majority of custom development for comScore, and the open source community via GitHub with Minecraft projects.

2021 Promoted to Supevisor of Australia/International Data operations. bought by parent Comscore company. Marvelhawk resignes from Comscore in November 2021.

2022 in sight with a potentially pandemic era closure, Marvelhawk intends to take on new challenges. Onward and upward, stay tuned.
