In the early days of the World Wide Web much of my free time was spent making brochure websites for bands, musicians, friends, non-profits and other local organizations. Each one of these early projects instilled in me the fundamentals of this craft, and sharpened the skills I would ultimately use on a daily basis.
Pretty soon I landed a real job at a web design agency, where I was responsible for managing the company's Continuing Services department. It was truly a ‘jack-of-all-trades’ job. After a new website launched I handled pretty much everything our clients’ needed; Search Engine Optimization, updates, maintenance, etc.
I also worked for other agencies and non-profits; served as the Director of Web Services for the Catholic Diocese of Austin, joined a team of developers at White Lion Internet Agency, and helped out a young startup; all while freelancing and working on pet projects in the off-hours.
Today I’m consulting full-time for agencies and creative teams who may not have in-house technical resources, or just need some extra hands on an important project.
