My career started with earning a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design. My work touched on various print design media - newspaper, magazines, books, brochures, posters, etc.
Having worked strictly in the graphic design field for a number of years, I began to delve into website design and development, including custom website graphics and layouts. Eventually, I moved into a couple of full time web development roles.
The 2007-08 years saw the introduction of mobile-friendly websites. I had direct involvement with a company that produced a unique Content Management System specifically for mobile (.mobi) websites that had a quickly adopted following. The company also provided full website development and graphic design services.
After digging into the role of a web developer, I got my introduction into Information Technology with an IT services company that supported local small businesses with their workstations, networks and peripherals. This venture led to helping the company open a store front walk-in business to reach new small business clients as well as consumers.
