I am a web designer/developer living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. Previous stops have included Portland Oregon, Boca Raton Florida, and Turku Finland.
I graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1995. In 1996, I developed my first website, a full-screen Flash based website for my other business at that time, an award winning environmental graphics company, MCM Graphix which I started that same year. I later sold that company in 2002 and moved on to designing and developing websites for many award winning photographers, business sites for large and small corporations, as well as interactive games for the marketing and travel industries. I have always been drawn to the interactive nature of websites and the potential to mix animation with interactions to create truly engaging experiences.
From 2008 to 2013 I worked as senior web designer/developer for a leading marketing firm in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and continue to collaborate on projects with them. In 2013 I started a new online portfolio service for photographers and creative professionals, Fluid Folio.
I am excited to announce a newly launched portfolio service for photographers and creative professionals, Fluid Folio.
This new service allows clients to easily build and update a responsive, search engine friendly, mobile compatible HTML5 portfolio website while also providing an advanced hosting platform coupled with a global content delivery network to ensure their images load fast for visitors around the globe.
