Traditional journalist turned corporate communications specialist turned interactive marketing pro. I have a Bachelors degree in Journalism from the University of Illinois and a Masters in Integrated Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University.

I started working on web development in 1996, when people thought this "world wide web thing" was just a fad. I can remember clearly how excited we used to get over an e-mail a month coming through our first 7-page brochure-ware website. I'm a trained writer, graphic designer, and photographer, and I think in software keyboard shortcuts. The last few years, I've been specializing in message strategy, website usability, search engine marketing, and internet commerce.

In the course of working on the web, I've learned to write HTML and program my own perl scripts, write simple javascripts, use CSS for layouts, and am currently diving into the world of PHP programming and SMARTY template systems. It's been rumored that some clandestine affair with a Googler has gotten me my outstanding SERP results, but it's really just good clean coding and taking advantage of the right tags on the right pages.

I'm good at what I do, but I realize there's a lot more I can learn. And so I'm here... open to any coaching that may come my way.
