Areas Of Expertise: 

I am knowledgable in the following areas:
  • Scripting
    • ASP
    • JavaScript
    • VBScript
  • Programming
    • Visual Basic
  • Web design
    • CSS
    • DHTML
    • HTML - Expert Rating Certified Professional!
    • XHTML
    • XML/XSL

I studied HTML for one year in school, and I have been continually increasing my skill level through self-teaching over the years. I am also knowledgable in the area of Javascript programming.

Over the past four years, I have had three different jobs in the area of Web development, ranging from the local school district to a major technology corporation. Each of these jobs has put me in a challenging position in which I always learned something new.

After studying Visual Basic for one year, I have constantly used the language and have been steadily increasing my ability. As one of the single most useful development tools, Visual Basic meets the needs of programmers and users alike with great speed of development and ease of use.

Projects I have worked on include multimedia applications and Internet browser interaction. However, my skills range far beyond this, into areas such as calculation/computation software, Microsoft Office development, and some database management.

My area of focus is programming and development, but I also work in the field of graphic design. My tools of choice are Jasc Paint Shop Pro and Jasc Animation Shop.

I am most experienced in Web site design, creating buttons, images, menus, etc. for Web pages. I also have done many small jobs involving the creation of animated .gif image files.


Projects I have completed recently:
  • Created new layout and design for existing web site, maintaining existing content
  • Developed code to detect which streaming video players are available, choose the best one, and load and play the associated file format
  • Overhauled, updated, corrected, and added new content to an existing web site, including redesigning navigation system -
  • Created and implemented animated GIF images for ASP-based web site
  • Developed a web browser auto-launcher which automatically browses advertising sites for users who receive credits for viewing
  • Added fullscreen video playback to audio jukebox program
  • Redesigned navigation and did some graphics work for high school's web site -
  • Coded Internet and intranet sites for NMC -
