During the day, I’m a code-monkey for FileMaker, Inc., a subsidiary of a little company you know as Apple, Inc. When I’m not in the office, I’m juggling the husband, dad, freelance web developer hats. I’m on the lookout for some small projects, so if you’re looking for someone to do a website for you, head over to Blue Sphere Studios to see some of my past work, and let me know if you’re interested.
I’m also a hockey player and a hopeless San Jose Sharks fan. During playoffs, my journal is probably going to be all about hockey. Sorry.
About the Site
Originally, I intended this site to be where I could write about and store web design-related articles, scripts, and sites that I found interested. A noble goal, but it quickly became a blog about what I thought about everything. You’ll still see web development geeky-ish posts regularly, but mixed in will be posts about my family, hockey, and maybe even a few movie reviews.
A little bit of a disclaimer: The name “Intelligent Design” does imply that I’m any kind of authority on good design, but is an homage to God (not just “some greater power” ) and the beauty of his creation, from which all designers get inspiration for their work, whether they realize it or not.
This site run on WordPress, a popular blog publishing package. Though I enjoyed coding my own weblog system from the ground up, I like being able to tap into the WordPress community’s resources.
The CSS Revolution
I’m a big fan of the relatively new web standards movement. Starting when Scriptygoddess began learning CSS, I began learning how to build web-standards websites in CSS. This separation of design and content makes developers and designers alike very, very happy, provides a set of standards (finally) that the web can adhere to, and instead of creating multiple versions of one website, I now only need to create one.
