self-portrait

I’m no superstar, nor do I pretend to be one on screen. I eat my veggies, like to ride my bike to work, have a beer, and enjoy the sunshine with a smile. Things about me:

Obviously, you’re not a golfer.

If you’re an agent or a rep reading this and have not laughed, or are confused, please, don’t worry about contacting me, as it could very well be a waste of both our time & energy, and this particular Dude (moi) will reply by NOT responding.

You may have come here from LinkedIn, but if not, I'm right here.

I am stronger as a developer than a designer. I would like to be able to proudly state that I am a designer, because all of my cool friends are designers - however, my gifts lie in the areas of organization, clarity, and architecture. Please note though, that if you have an existing design, and need adjunct or related areas of a site built based upon those, mimicry is a definite skill of mine.

The Dude abides.
