I began my career as a traditional cut-and-paste print designer, before upgrading to my first Mac in 1990. It was love at first "Dong" and I've never looked back! I've worked with some amazing designers and incredibly talented creative and art directors over the years, and I've happily absorbed both old and new mediums like a sponge. It's not just "pretty pictures," either. Design is just as much about how to present your information—your content—in the best possible way in order to get your message across, as it is about graphics and images.
I began working with HTML in 1995, and I'm happy to say I still prefer to hand-code as it allows me to get under the hood, and avoid using WYSIWYG editors with their messy code. In addition to the mechanics of web design, I've learned a lot of great stuff about the business of the biz. I can offer a no-nonsense, pragmatic approach to developing your website—which won't include wasting a fortune on SEO or getting your site blacklisted. It's not that SEO won't enter into it, it's just that most sites don't require anything more than well-written and developed content, and properly optimized code.
In addition to the following examples, I have samples of work on my Adobe's MyPortfolio portfolio. My work is not limited to what you see here… If you can imagine it, I can deliver it! Please contact me if you have any questions.
