I am a seasoned web developer located in Portland, Oregon. I wrote my first lines of HTML and CSS in 1999 and now I am a javascript ninja, fully capable of producing CSS box layouts, DOM manipulation, form validation, and AJAX widgets. My daily practice involves learning javascript libraries like jQuery and ExtJS, employing HTML and SEO Best Practices, and communicating knowledge of W3C Standards and Cross Browser Compatibility issues. I am a process oriented employee who works well in team environments, but also enjoys working independently. Though experienced and versed in server-side web development roles, I find client-side web developing much more fulfilling. My previous employers include federal and state government agencies where Section 508 Compliance and W3C Standard Compliant webpages were top priority. My most recent experience includes client-side development for an enterprise level customer base.
