The VisionPreneur


Some may say I was ahead of my time. Web development was too new to be part of my curriculum when I was in college, so I studied computer engineering and concentrated on software development. I took interest in a course that allowed me to learn the fundamentals of UNIX and used that skill when I graduated. I began working as a software engineer, programming embedded software for large scale multifunction copiers and then blood analyzers for medical labs. I used the UNIX skills I had learned to debug these complex systems I worked on and helped to upgrade their systems.

One day, I was asked to join a small team to create an internal website for our department and that experience changed my career path. I was introduced to PHP and began to enjoy the challenge of working with this new medium of web servers and sites. I was also introduced to the open source movement, which worked well with my interest in improving and extending my PHP capabilities.

My passion for web development grew, and I decided to start my own business. My first major project was helping my tenants' association with its first dynamic website. It became a vital resource for over 25,000 residents and the entire volunteer staff who helped support them. From there, I continued to do various projects for other non profit organizations, doctor's practices, artists, a local pharmacy and other small businesses. I became a PayPal Certified Developer and have since developed dozens of websites. I enjoy helping people get the most out of their online presence and creating something uniquely useful for my clients.
