I have had the great opportunity to experience many facets of online business and the endless possibilities of graphic and web design so early in my career.  I have designed and redesigned (web design + programming) a variety of websites, managed (and designed) corporate email marketing material, created logos and other print / online collateral, and produced animated and static web banners.

My past experiences have required me to juggle tasks and prioritize based upon the most critical business need.  A constant goal of mine is to be a continual learner, extend my skill set and to appreciate the challenges each day presents (whatever that challenge may be).

    • “To Whom it May Concern: I am writing this letter of recommendation on behalf of Boyd Massie. From the Fall of 2004 to the Spring of 2005 Boyd was hired to assist me at the Digital Media Center, a division of Information Resources at Pacific Lutheran University. As the Digital Media Developer I was responsible for a wide spectrum of program development, University wide support, technology deployment, instruction and maintenance of web applications.When I hired Boyd, his duties were open-ended; he was to assist me in whatever capacity I needed to meet my production schedules. This field of endeavor involved learning a multitude of web design, support and digital media technology techniques including but not limited to PHP / MySql, HTML and CSS, NLE video editing, hardware maintenance for a public lab and the multitude of requirements for a department of our nature within the University structure in general. Boyd proved to be a quick learner and accepted responsibility for performing various tasks with minimal supervision.During his tenure with Information Resources, Boyd was able to handle the day-to-day operation of my multimedia lab and web development projects. He is a most tenacious worker and will be missed. Without reservation, I can give him my highest recommendation for any position for which he might apply. He truly has been an asset to Pacific Lutheran University and to my department in particular.
