Web

I have worked as a front-end web developer, web administrator, content manager and designer for a variety of projects. I am proficient at managing content in Joomla and WordPress and can easily adapt to other CMS systems such as Drupal. I am comfortable coding straight from Notepad++ with HTML5 and CSS3 with a working knowledge of JQuery and the Google Maps API.
