Like I was saying, I have 10 years of web design experience under my belt. During that time I've worked on a variety of projects with clients all across the US.
I like to keep up with the latest web 2.0 looks as well as look to the future for new ideas on design.
All my sites are built using HTML and CSS. HTML is the frame structure of the site so I do my best to build them to the W3 standards. I then add CSS to style the look and feel of the site. It's important to do this correctly so all browsers display the site properly.
I've worked with applications such as ExactTarget and MailChimp to deliver mass emails/newsletters to people around the world.
PHP is my weapon of choice. I've been using it for 5 years. Many of the websites I've built are data driven. My clients can add, remove and update content as they please with having little to no knowledge of HTML.
This is my latest craze. Wether it's creating a widget, RSS Reader, Photo Gallery or Movie Player, Flash is the way to go. It can add that extra something to your site that will make it standout.
A database can become confusing once many tables are needed. I see a database as a jigsaw puzzle. You just need to make sure the right pieces fit together. MySQL is the backbone for all my data driven sites. It's what holds on to all content even when you turn the lights out.
