PERSONAL NOTE: I’m fairly new to the concept of creating a “web presence.” Several of the books that I’ve read on the subject of business profiles recommend communicating in an impersonal, “professional” tone. While I consider myself and the quality of my work to be very professional, I am NOT an impersonal type guy.
So, as you browse through the remainder of this page—as I hope you will—please keep in mind that it was composed by a real person dressed in jeans and a tee shirt.
