I telecommute from Shelburne, Vermont, serving as the web administrator for the BioQUEST Curriculum Consortium which is based at Beloit College. Although my primary responsibility is to design and build the web site for the BEDROCK project, I also support the web efforts for all other BioQUEST projects.

My primary tools are from the Macromedia family (Dreamweaver MX, etc.). The BEDROCK site is our first to implement CSS (cascading style sheets) in a thorough manner. With the help of Chiro Umezaki, BioQUEST's programmer, we have developed data driven content via MySQL databases and php scripts. As we continue to develop that functionality, more and more of the BEDROCK and BioQUEST site content will become data driven.

I have been a web designer and administrator since 2000. Immediately prior to this position, I conducted web-based research for an Internet startup here in Vermont. From 1990-1997, I held a variety of administrative positions in non-profits and higher education, primarily in Development (a euphemism for fundraising). My experience building and maintaining donor databases as well as a keen interest in learning new software led me down the road to web design.

I am a 1989 graduate of Beloit College where I received a BA in Modern Languages and Literature (French and Japanese) with an Asian Studies minor.
