Bio

I'm an Arizona based Web designer, front-end developer, and all-round artist who loves a challenge. If I'm not actively learning something new then I must be dead. However, my goal is not to learn everything, but to be excellent at everything I learn. If you would like to know what I am currently learning then check out the Experimental section of my development page.

Development Skills

My skill level is based on a front-end focus. I have done some server-side programming and am not afraid to collect or add info to a database as needed, but let's face it, front-end code is more fun because everyone gets to see and interact with the thing you created.
