Education and Experience

I am a professional web designer & developer working in and around Chicago since 1999.

 

In 1997, I graduated from Chicago’s American Academy of Art with a dual degree in Illustration and Graphic Design.  After completing my academic career, I worked on pre and post production video work in Los Angeles. I started learning computer graphics and developed a strong interest in web publishing. Upon returning to Chicago I enrolled in more classes at College of DuPage and took a large variety of computer, design, and marketing classes. Some of which included programming, Cisco network engineering and Microsoft office applications training.

Outside the classroom I was learning HTML and web design on the job and through books. Soon I became an avid consumer of any and all relevant literature in the field.  While carefully honing my skills in DHTML, XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript, I quickly progressed to compound this expertise with thorough supplementary knowledge of digital graphics, programming, web hosting, web applications and web servers.

From 2000-2009, I spearheaded the creation of Yourlink Web Services Inc. an innovative and uniquely poised company that provided custom web design, web hosting, web development solutions to today’s businesses, organization and individuals.

As a freelance consultant I have worked on database applications and user interface design projects. in addition to marketing and advertising clients web sites through various online networks and search engines in order to increase interested traffic and leads generated through the web.

My recent work includes contracting and consulting work for businesses and organizations. managing and maintaining web applications and content management systems (CMS).  I also frequently update and maintain content websites.
