Dec 18, 2003 My updated resume, current as of December 2003.
I'm a Certified Usability Analyst (Sep 18, 2002)
After a rigorous 2-1/2 hour exam, I'm now an HFI-Certified Usability Analyst. See some sample questions (43Kb PDF) from the test. Bottom line: I know how to build very useable web applications.
My life, in 30 seconds or less (Jun 12, 2002)
I operated a graphic design studio from 1994 to 1997, specializing initially in print design and then moving into web development in 1995. In May 1997, I became the senior web developer at Mercantile Bancorporation, a Fortune 500 bank-holding company in St. Louis, Missouri. Mercantile Bank became Firstar Bank which became U.S. Bank. I did volunteer work in Bosnia-Herzegovina from August 2000 to October 2001, and now I'm the lead Internet Systems Analyst at Playground in Vancouver.
