Spike Xavier has been involved in technology for over fifteen years. He started in the early days of ecommerce, running order processing and credit-card authorizations for one of the largest gift companies in the world. He charted new waters in 1995 by starting his own company, which would become merch.com. Merch.com grew into one of the largest ecommerce merchandisers in the world, serving as the official online store for No Doubt, The Offspring, Social Distortion, Nine Inch Nails, Tony Hawk, P!nk, Pennywise, and many others. It was during this time that Spike fell in love with web design and development.
