I will consider a short- or long-term consulting or full/part-time position in the NJ / New York City area (and/or via Net-commuting). I have been publishing on the WWW since 1995, and have worked professionally in the field since 1996.

Although not a formally trained designer, I have gained accolades from the Web World and have had sites featured on television and radio, and in newspapers and magazines. My philosophy leans toward simplicity to increase usability, but I'm not afraid of adding appropriate pizzazz through Flash, animations, and audio/video enhancements. My current interests include audio/video editing and encoding and DVD production.

I am most interested in the entertainment industry (music, movies, TV, radio, and online or print publishing) but will consider other industries.
