WEB DEVELOMENT


With over 17 years experience as a web developer, I've had the pleasure of working with a number of great clients and companies on a wide range of projects. I've worked with large companies like the US Speedsakting Team, The Salt Lake Tribune, and Rotana, the world's largest Arab media and entertainment company. And I've worked with small companies like Read to Roo, a non-profit organization serving as literacy mentors for elementary school children through use of service dogs.

With each new client comes a new challenge, a new experience, and a lot of hard work. But with that hard work comes the satisfaction of creating something unique that many people can use and enjoy.

I would never have imagined becoming a "programmer". It was always touted as a boring desk job where you type gibberish all day. Now, it's hard to imagine being anything else. Each new job is like embarking on a new 10,000 piece jig-saw puzzle - what's not to love about that!
