Spike has been involved in technology for over 15 years.

He charted off into his own waters in 1995 by starting a company of his own which would become merch.com.  Merch.com grew from his bedroom into one of the largest on line e-commerce merchandisers in the world.  Serving as the official online store for such acts as: No Doubt, the Offspring, Social Distortion, Nine Inch Nails, Tony Hawk, Pink, Pennywise and many others.  It was during this time that Spike fell in love with web design and development.
