I’m a bit of a digital pack rat. I have files going back over a decade of website and design work. Some of it freelance, some of it contract, some of it as a full time employee. It was fun going though what, I thought at the time, was good design work.

Flash websites and splash pages” were all the rage when I first started out. Since I no longer have Flash player installed there’s no easy way to view those files anymore. Suffice to say I was very proficient with Action Script.
