Personal Statement
I have been tinkering with web design since 1998. Beginning life as a die-
hard purist in HTML, the majority of my early work was done armed only with
Photoshop and notepad. Coding in table based design for some time; I
finally made the switch over to CSS layouts 2 years ago.

Now using Dreamweaver as the choice editor for my entire web design
workload, all my sites are now coded to the strict XHTML and CSS3
requirements. I have a background in installing and customising PHP based
back end systems such as CMS, message boards and ecommerce systems. I have
a good working knowledge of MySQL and phpMYADMIN.
I'm proficient in implementing JavaScript and embedding most types of media
including Flash based animations. I use Photoshop for the majority of my
work and Illustrator for any vector based designs.

I am a driven and focused person who relishes a challenge. I am a
proficient and polite communicator with good experience in office –based
admin roles, as well as management positions.

I have experience in helping run a small design company that offers
solutions to corporate identity, web design, hosting and streaming audio
solutions. Many of my skills have been self-taught or gained through on the
job experience and I like to remain teachable at all times. I have a
healthy thirst for knowledge. I am currently studying my Adobe Association
in the CS5 design.
