I began my career originally in Office Administration and IT Networking surprisingly. Over time and endless WWW surfing I came to believe that even though many websites had “flashing lights” and “were all singing and dancing” so the saying goes a balance had yet to be found which made a website easy to use but also not taking away the creative and bespoke design.
Hence i3lance was formed…and ever since I’ve taken to designing and developing online applications/sites – as simple as being in its static form to complete dynamic multilingual or transactional applications/sites – like a fish in water.
Before I could swim though, like all developers you need your ‘floats’, I started out using floats in the mid 1990′s. But got rid of those things fairly quickly!
I was always fairly proficient at Adobe (Macromedia back then) Flash but working for corporates from 2003 on Flash specific projects has really fast-tracked my proficiency level. There are some fantastic sites and Flash applications out there – and eventually I’ll be behind a lot more of them.
2008 to present really saw me begin on focus on front-end CSS/HTML, web standards and middle-ware development.
Over time I’ve been fortunate enough to build advanced experience in almost 15 different web languages and skills as well as meet some great designers and developers along the way.
