PROFILE

My background in education and experience in journalism and freelance writing allow me to contribute to an organization as more than a Web developer. I help ensure that Web properties maintain a human face and a focus on user experience and comfort. Proficiency in the Adobe Creative Suite including Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Illustrator as well as a working knowledge of PHP, Javascript, the Drupal content management system, and Google Analytics and Adwords mean that I bring the essential skills to a Web development position. Creative thinking, the ability to handle multiple projects, and adept interaction with people help me quickly develop an understanding of the structure, priorities and business/marketing objectives of an organization, and ensure that the public sees the best that organization has to offer.
