About

I’m based in New Jersey, on the outskirts of NYC where I’ve been working as a web developer since 1997 [and yes, there was a web in 1997!]. I have worked on a wide variety of sites from the simple publicity sites to highly interactive Ajax projects and other web based applications. Most recently I have been concentrating on developing sites using XHTML, CSS, JavaScript built upon a platform of PHP & MySQL (among a pile of other languages).

In addition to this site, Place Name Here, I write for and maintain ChunkySoup.net, and participate as a contributing member of the Web Standards Project and regularly post on Flickr.

When away from the glow of my computer screens I enjoy photography, hot cups of cocoa by the fire and long moonlit strolls on the beach (oops, that was intended for craigslist, sorry)
