My Philosohpy

To create outstanding web sites with elegant code that perfectly fit my client's needs. Web sites are about communication and I design and code to that end. They should be visually attractive, easy to navigate and find the information the viewer is looking for and they should function quickly and cleanly, i.e., the back-end code should be as beautifully and efficiently written as the visual design the viewer sees.
