A little about my background


I have always drawn and won many awards as a child. I loved Art, but long ago my dad told me there was no future in art. In the middle of 1996 my friend showed me HTML. I fell in love at first site. HTML became a way for me to draw and put it up for the world to see. My passion for design met HTML and the rest is history. Now I code as much as I deisgn. I am frequently asked if im a coder or designer. My answer is Both. Afterall a great design doesn't live and breathe without great code. On the flip side great code doesn't come to life without great design.

I'm a freelance designer/developer based in Phoenix AZ with over 18 years of design & development experience. I've been creating websites since the early days back when Iframes, tables and animated GIFs were all the rage. I went to college and got a Bachelors in Computer Science in '98, I originally started college life wanting to be a accountant since im great with math and that's where the money is. To my surprise I hated it and quickly changed my major.

I strive to keep up to date with the latest and greatest technologies, and making them work for me and my clients. I use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to design graphics for the web and print media. I use Dreamweaver to code websites, listing templates, and squeeze pages. I design custom themes for many platforms such as Joomla, Creloaded, osCommerce, Wordpress, Zencart, and Magento.

I also design print media like business cards, letterhead, logos, brochures, invitatations and anything in between that can be printed. To see some of my work view my online portfolio now.
