About Me

I work as a web designer for Voice of America in Washington, DC. Previously I worked as a web developer at the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and as a web designer and developer for the Baltimore Sun. I’m currently taking a hiatus from freelance work, but for almost 15 years I signed and worked with clients under the Speed Web Design and Pragmedia labels. My LinkedIn page has more info.

I am equally capable and enjoy working with both the design and development halves of a web project. I have over 10 years of experience working with HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, and Photoshop. I’ve been using and customizing WordPress since 2004.

I graduated in 2005 from the University of Scranton with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a minor in Theatre. After moving to Baltimore and living in the Fells Point and Upper Fells neighborhoods for a few years, I bought a house at the north edge of the city with my wife, Annie. We live there with our two boys, Henry and Owen.

My hobbies include listening to a wide range of music, watching movies and ambitious TV shows, and building things on Baltimore Minecraft. I am also a semi-serious photographer and shoot most often with a Nikon D90, Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens with a B+W 52mm UVA Haze MRC Filter, and a Nikon SB-600 Speedlight; however, I don’t upload photos frequently enough. I’m going to buy a Honda CBR500R motorcycle in the spring.
