History

My development experience is enhanced from contract work. I'm skilled at coming into a new situation with focus toward learning expectations swiftly, then rolling up my sleeves and digging into the tasks at hand. I started coding with Notepad in '96 and enjoy investigating page structure. EditPad Pro rocks.

    My passions and strengths:
  • problem solving and research
  • learning new technology and staying current with trends
  • working with design teams and partners - or on my own
  • laying down clean, concise code - cross-browser supported and standards compliant
  • written and verbal communication

I love the expanse and flow of the web. Helping people get their thoughts and products into the public forum, and getting the information to the people seeking it, is a good thing.

I am well organized in my work and documentation, to maintain clear and open communication with my peers and partners. I can handle multiple projects. I work both on- and off-site.
