Back in 1999, Jeff Collins was the store administrator and original programmer for ebaygear.com. He also was the director of ecommerce for florist.com which is now owned by FTD. With a passion for ecommerce coursing through his veins, we've always been fortunate to have Jeff in the Miva Merchant community. In the early days, Jeff offered Miva users invaluable technical support via the support mailing list, and he was eventually hired on as the 8th official Miva employee. A long time Miva Scripter, Jeff drew out how OpenUI could conceptually work on a restaurant napkin. OpenUI gave Miva Merchant users unparalleled freedom in controlling the look and feel of their stores - Something the core Miva Merchant software wouldn't be able to offer until years later. Jeff is also the CEO of Nerdboy Inc. which was established in 1997. To this day Nerdboy provides exemplary consulting and developing services to the Miva Merchant community. And for all of that, we present Jeff Collins the Life Time Achievement Award.
