I am a self-driven, well-rounded and determined web programmer/developer and web technologist who has had a passion for building websites and web applications for quite some time. Technologies these days are constantly changing and I'm always trying to learn more and come up with new ways to improve existing concepts.
My determination has enabled me to work on personal side projects and continue freelancing (which I started in 2005), seeking ways help improve businesses, organizations or individuals communicate/distribute their purpose, services or identity to the world over the web. In addition to having my own "business" in freelancing with both short-term and long-term client relationships, I have corporate work experience in my profession too. Besides web work, have interest in the arts: writing poetry, photography, drawing, martial arts, watching performances such as plays and music bands.
I welcome anyone interested in knowing more about my web services, me as a web person, or just looking for some inspiration. Please click on the links above to read more in depth my story, how it all started, and to see how I can better help you accomplish your goals.
