About This Site

This site is home for my freelance web design work and an attempt to express myself creatively on the web. It is a brochure, portfolio and blog of my work.

I coded this website with a custom PHP MVC framework that spits out tons of xHTML and CSS along with a couple lines of jQuery Javascript. Of course, the blog is running on Wordpress. The design was put together by me in Photoshop, but uses icons from a couple free sources. The social networking icon package was created by another aspiring web developer, Eli Burford. I love open source, and I thank everyone in the community for sharing code and graphics. The background of this site is a slightly modified image of the beach that I regularly surf with my friends in Harvey Cedars.

More About Me

Most of my free time is spent trying to get to a beach with some waves to surf. I love going to school in New York City because it makes it easy to learn something new and different every day. I have been programming since I was in the 5th grade and have scripted everything from Unix bash scripts to 3D augmented reality applications. I believe the internet is the most accessible platform on earth, and I enjoy exploring how rich the user experience can get.

Uh oh, Last.fm didn't respond...
