Bio

As a lifelong autodidact, I believe in continual education, which serves me well in the ever changing landscape of website development.

I began my journey in web design/development & social media in 2000 when I got involved with some of the earliest social networking: MSN Groups. What started as a hobby soon became a passion as I learned the basics of webpage design. It wasn't too long before I began teaching myself Photoshop so I could add graphics to my pages without the worry of copyright infringement.

A year later, I realized I wanted web design to become my career, so I began learning how to use Dreamweaver, along with the basics of HTML, CSS, & JavaScript. When I launched my first website in 2004, I quickly found out it was virtually invisible on the web. That's when I first started researching Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

Through the same means & determination, I taught myself the on-page & off-page elements of Organic SEO. After about another year of fine tuning, I began routinely seeing my sites reach Google's first SERP within a month & often as quickly as one week.

My dedication to staying on top of current trends & techniques keeps my sites at the top of organic search results. I now develop fully responsive, highly aesthetic & functional websites through the use of Progressive Enhancement. They tend to mirror my career path in their intuitive & evolutionary design.

I'm also the sole designer, developer, network admin, & community manager at d6 Collab!
