I am a front-end web architect and multimedia professor. With 20 years experience producing web presences, and 18 years teaching and designing multimedia courses for colleges, I have acquired a solid knowledge of web technologies, accessible responsive design, and UX and UI.
I currently share my knowledge at Humber and Sheridan colleges as a professor in both their media studies department, where I designed the courses I teach. I also spend part of my work week creating and consulting for branding agencies and government organizations. These days I have a real zest for security on the web, and enjoy learning new ways to protect custom content.
