**while I do list the web development software I can operate, my preference is to write code in a basic text/HTML editor only -- I'm not a "Notepad snob', I just find it much easier this way.
Business Applications: Microsoft Office Professional Suite: Access, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher and Visio; ADP payroll software; FundEZ; Crystal Reports; FilemakerPro; QuickBooks; Lotus SmartSuite; Corel WordPerfect; as well as several OCR/scanning and digital fax applications.
Operating Systems: Windows 3.11, 9x, NT, 2000, and XP; working knowledge of Macintosh OS.
Equipment Operation: Install and configuration of PC hardware, software, peripherals, and basic ethernet networks, as well as most office and business machines.
In addition to my design and technical abilities, I have an extensive employment history in corporate, non-profit, human services, and government related fields. I have a current resume available detailing my work history. If you would like a copy, please e-mail me.
Aside from the obvious obsession with anything computer-related, my personal interests are in my dog Herrah (a female AmStaff), my music collection, being visually capitivated by fine art (especially the work of Gustav Klimt), movies and feature film, modern literature, and a vaguely disturbing interest in forensic science and criminal investigations.
