I am a professional web designer, certified in the full spectrum of coding / scripting, and design. Additionally my specialties are Flash, Actionscript, Xhtml, Linux, Unix, and OSX Server Development. I have been neck-deep in creating DNS Zone Files, BIND, Perl, Apache, Shells, and Postfix / Sendmail for 12 years. I also have experience in Circuit Design (certified in 2011), and Systems Analysis, and I can provide a moderate to expert level of support for any of these fields.
During the course of my career I have worked directly with Apple Computer, NASDAQ, Earthlink, Amazon, Time Warner, and many more to enhance my knowledge across the 7 layers of the OSI model. My hope is that I can meet other innovators and entrepreneurs as well, and that we can find success together here at Elance.
