Making the Site

I started writing html in 1995. At that time, I created my first personal website. It featured a "journal" (we didn't call them blogs), a forum, and a radical and bleeding-edge technology called "javascript". It was optimized for 800 pixel monitors and 56k dial-up modems.

I can't remember when I pulled it down, but it's been at least a decade. I always meant to redesign or create a nice corporate site for myself, but never got around to it.

Since I get my work through word of mouth and repeat business, I hadn't needed a site for marketing purposes. But I'm a web developer, right? I should have a website, shouldn't I?

So in March 2010 I decided to rejoin the world wide web. I contacted my good friend, writer and designer extraordinaire Karen Chase of 224 Design for help with the design and content. (Check her out. She is amazing.)

So ten years, three html files, and 29 lines of jquery later I have my first real website and I couldn't be happier with the result.
