A warm welcome message

Hi! Thanks for visiting my site. You're likely here because I applied for a job at your company.

A quick background on me: I started my Web design and development career 19 years ago. For the last nine years I've focused primarily on HTML and CSS development, putting design work on the back burner.

I have a degree in journalism because I wanted to write about the Oakland A's for Sports Illustrated, but for a few reasons a journalism career didn't work out after I graduated. To make ends meet as a new graduate I held a few clerical jobs, and in the early 2000s I started freelancing in graphic and Web design. It was a good fit — I've always been an artsy person, and I originally considered majoring in graphic design. But since both my siblings earned degrees in graphic design, I went a different route. It's funny; I made a career out of it, and they didn't. (Don't tell them I said that.)

Despite dedicating myself to Web work, I still love to write. While I was at Zoosk, I contributed to our engineering blog plus a humble article on Zoosk's The Date Mix.

If you want to contact me, please send me a message through LinkedIn.

Thanks again for stopping by.
