Areas of Expertise

I began using a computer when I was very young. Then starting in middle school I was introduced to BBS’s (Bulletin Board Systems) which is how people connected to the net at the time. Using our 2400 baud modem I would dial in to an all ASCII (text only) service and leave messages, do research and play games. After graduating high school I went to work for AOL, then the largest internet service provider on the planet. On the side I began creating websites either using raw html or services like Angle Fire and Geo Cities.

While continuing my education and working in various other fields I continued to make websites as a side hobby, teaching myself the “new” coding language CSS to help in their development. In 2010 I began pursuing clients for a part time freelance business. By 2012 I was working as a full time doing web development and content management.
