Hi everyone! OK, I finally did it. Like a mechanic who takes great care of your car but doesn't work on his own vehicle, my own web site got away from me for a while, but now it's back! Take a look on the mobile device of your choice... Not only is the site responsive, it is newly updated with semantic HTML5!

In addition, I recently (ok, today) added a new section - "Creative". This section shows off graphics and Flash animations I've created that are my best effort to date. View them here!

What I Do
I have been a full-time web designer since 1999 when I was first hired as a web professional to help solve website issues. The web design industry has come a long way since then! My tools for construction are HTML, CSS, Javascript, JQuery and Visual Studio 2012, plus Adobe's master collection (now CS5.5); Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash and, occasionally, Illustrator and Audition all find their way into my hands as they are needed. I am constantly trying to develop a better eye for balance, color and detail. I test websites in 4 major browsers: IE, Firefox, Safari and Chrome to make sure my web page features work properly in them.

Where I've Been
After a successful career diagnosing and repairing mainframe and super-mini computer systems, I decided a change was in order. The Internet presented itself as a great possibility for a new career, so I went ahead, and never looked back.
