-Much of my web work has involved working in education on sites that support an educational purpose whether school websites, teacher websites, online tutorials, online art galleries, what have you.  I have done a number of other web projects for various non-profits and of course my own projects.  I have been involved in moving major sites from static content to dynamic database driven sites.  In early 2000 I worked with several students to develop a content management system in "coldfusion markup" because we could not find an affordable CSM at that time.  I used that system for several years and in many ways it was better than the ones I use today. I am also in the rather unique position of having also setup and managed webserver hardware so I understand the web for the server side of things something most web designers lack.+Much of my web work has involved working in education on sites that support an educational purpose whether school websites, teachers websites, online tutorials, online art galleries, what have you.  I have done a number of other web projects for various non-profits and of course my own projects.  I have been involved in moving major sites from static content to dynamic database driven sites.  In early 2000 I worked with several students to develop a content management system in "coldfusion markup" because we could not find an affordable CSM at that time.  I used that system for several years and in many ways it was better than the ones I use today.

-My interest has always been in developing sites that are "content drive".  It is not hard to build a website but, it is very hard to build a good one.  Content and substance over flash and glitz characterizes my approach.   It is easy to make a site look pretty with fancy graphics, rollover effects, flyout menus, Flash effects, however, it takes careful thought and hard work to fill in detail and give it depth and meaningful content.  At the same time I am always eager to embrace a new technology if it will add substance and enhance functionality. +My interest has always been in developing sites that are "content driven".  It is not hard to build a website but, it is very hard to build a good one.  Content and substance over flash and glitz characterizes my approach.   It is easy to make a site look pretty with fancy graphics, rollover effects, flyout menus, Flash effects, however, it takes careful thought and hard work to fill in detail and give it depth and meaningful content.  At the same time I am always eager to embrace a new technology if it will add substance and enhance functionality. 
  
 The web has the ability to "tell stories" like no other medium.  You can do it with images, video, sound, animations, and the old standard, plain text.  I always try to look for ways to "tell stories", to share what is unique, to take the everyday happenings and turn them into interesting vignettes that give the reader/viewer a better understanding of the issue at hand.   The web has the ability to "tell stories" like no other medium.  You can do it with images, video, sound, animations, and the old standard, plain text.  I always try to look for ways to "tell stories", to share what is unique, to take the everyday happenings and turn them into interesting vignettes that give the reader/viewer a better understanding of the issue at hand.
