I love the freedom and power of self-expression that the internet provides, and am particularly passionate about both accessibility and usability. I thrive on challenge. I reject the status quo, always looking for ways to improve upon existing processes and methodologies. I am a quick study and am self-taught in all the web-related technologies I know.

My primary goal is to continually progress upward in my career in web development, not only in position, but also knowledge and skill. My ideal work environment is fast-paced but not chaotically hectic, challenging, and provides many opportunities to acquire new skills as well as cultivate existing skills.
