About

I am a web designer, front-end developer and photographer living in Dickinson, Texas. I’m passionate about what I do, with a variety of skills and experience, a double helping of humor, and a can-do, will-do attitude. I take great pride in my work, with an unmatched attention to detail and a determination to deliver above and beyond the requirements of the job. I have experience with forum administration and community management (having managed the largest online community for lucid dreamers in existence today), event photography, and even outdoors team-building courses with corporate and educational groups. Did I mention that I'm a whiz in Photoshop, pretty handy with A/V, and a hobby writer? Bottom line is, you want a guy like me on your team.
