I have been building websites professionally since 1998 and have a thorough understanding of current coding and web standards.

In May 2012, I received a Master of Liberal Arts in Information Technology with a concentration of Digital Media Arts and Sciences from the Harvard University Extension School. Selected samples of my work can be found in the tag cloud in the sidebar.
