I have been designing websites independently for about eight years now, starting with straight HTML coding and specializing over the last 6 or so on open source formats such as Joomla (CMS) and elgg (networking platform). My primary specialty is in 'dark' design (black, dark, grungy or elegant, reds and neons vs. the whites, blues and lt. greens of most sites - though I can design those as well - see my portfolio here for examples).

I can design any basic site you could need. Informational, interactive, descriptive, band or model pages, etc.... and set it up to where you can add to it after I'm done (so no need to keep me on retainer unless you really WANT me to keep working on your site).

I am a lifelong artist and thus also have many so-called 'traditional' art skills (sketching, drawing, writing calligraphy) and can incorporate this into my work. I can manipulate a database, do search engine optimization, and a whole lot more. If I don't know how to do something, I am also always willing to learn.
My current obsession is www.DiabolicView.com (this is a social network for rational occultist created with Joomla 1.5 and incorporating an elgg 1.7 site into it via iframe and database integration - you can check it out, if you'd like, using the guest account I set up just for that purpose - username is "guest", password is "master123" - just please do not abuse the profile!).
I have experience in the following:
Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, and now 2.5 (CMS)
elgg 1.2, 1.3, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 and 1.8 (social networking platform)
Simple Machines Forum
straight HTML ("hand-coding")
Cascading Style Sheets
mySQL database integration/modification
customizing and modifying various DHTML...
