I Have Been Designing For a Long Time
I have been working on the Web since 1996 when I started designing my first employer’s website with Netscape and Notepad. I’ve spent the bulk of my design career working in-house as both a graphic designer and internal web developer, but coupled with years of freelance and agency work, I have created dozens of websites for businesses of all sizes in an array of industries.
I graduated with honors from The Art Institute of Philadelphia in 2000, and have since actively pursued my passion for web and print design. I now consult with businesses on their websites and marketing programs, and in my free time obsess over semantic HTML, different shades of green, and how to rule the planet.
I Have Written Two Books
Writing is one of my favorite past times, especially when a publisher gives me money to voice my expertise in print.
