Bio: 

A graphic designer by training and a web developer by trade. A combination that has allowed me to grow and evolve with the industry over the past 14 years working with a wide range of technologies. I'ves enjoyed working in both the corporate world using Microsoft's ASP/.net technologies to open source solutions such as PHP and Drupal.

With a technical and creative background I often find myself marvelling in the beauty of an elegant line of code. It's with this perspective I've enjoyed crafting solutions that provide an endless supply of inspiration while also simply getting the job done.
