My History & Profile

Highly driven, passionate Web-Software-Applications Developer / Graphic-Web Designer / UX-UI Developer with over 15 years experience building custom websites using the latest web technologies and standards. Skilled in all phases of the website development process; from concept, wireframe creation, mockup design, web page coding, code debugging, W3C validation, 508 compliance, cross browser testing, to social media integration and SEO. Has a passion for fluid design and new technologies to create awe inspiring layouts and campaigns. Is a sponge in the office to replicate business practices to successfully meet goals and deadlines.

As a long-time practicing web designer/developer, actionscript & javascript programmer, UI architect, graphic designer, I have spent many years working with images and contemplating structures of composition with image and typography. The need to satisfy my creative side is expressed through photography and the images that I am both drawn to as a viewer as well as a maker tend to be the antithesis of the crisp, grid bound, modernist typographic, graphic design that I have spent many years making.

Through the development of several ongoing projects I am trying to understand the themes that run through my work so that I may follow them through to where they take me as an web developer.
