Summary

Web Design and Development Student

Flexible, Spontaneous, Dedicated to Detail and Elegant Design

Portland Community College student about to earn my Web Design and Development Certificate. Passionate, some would say obsessed, about clean, lean, fluff-free coding that provides a fulfilling and intuitive user experience. Uncanny ability to create order out of chaos and bring humor to the wake.

What I bring to the party...

  • Creative vision for web site planning and design, SEO, interactive multimedia and writing projects.
  • Actually enjoy front end, hands on XHTML and CSS coding, trouble shooting and debugging.
  • Highly proficient with Adobe CS4 applications: Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash, Illustrator, In Design, Director, Media Encoder and Sound Booth... some HTML5 and CSS3.
  • Enthusiastically tacking toward the dark side... object oriented programming, PHP, MySQL, Java, CMS and beyond. 
  • 25 years professional musician.
