I'm innately curious, so I love the fact that the internet came along to deal with the 15 odd questions per day I have about things. I'm a self-dubbed "Google Queen." I'm not afraid to admit that I don't know something, which then prompts me to immediately find the answer.
I'm a multi-tasker. I enjoy having 5 things thrown at me and conquering them successfully....then I move on to the next 5 things. Basically, I like being busy. Sitting still doesn't work for me. When I go on vacation, I don't relax. I DO IT.
I'm crazy about reptiles, hence the name of my site. I raised snakes and iguanas for 20 years and there's nothing happier than a warm reptile basking in the sun!
I'm creative and like building things with my hands. Among other things, I've worked with mosaic tiles, watercolors, stained glass, pottery and I can build a mean sand octopus. I'm also a muscle car enthusiast, having owned a '69 Camaro for 19 years, restoring it and working on it myself. I don't mind oil under my nails and I'm definitely not afraid of a socket wrench.
I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to live in 5 countries. There's nothing like being immersed in a different culture and learning a ton about yourself you never knew before. I even wrote a book about it!
I have been an I.T. pro for over 23 years. Starting out as a programmer, I have had experience in database design, building PC's and servers, web, blog and logo design, eCommerce, network administration, help desk, setting up corporate networks, performing huge CRM migrations that would make you pull your hair out and much more.
I have owned online businesses for five years and sold on auction platforms for sixteen, so I understand what it takes to make money and how to accommodate customers. I can easily explain technical details without eyes glazing over and I know when TMI becomes a hindrance. I have a comprehensive understanding of how websites should work and I excel when it comes to creating a user friendly design. Your project won't be completed until you're satisfied and I will always be available for post production support.
Quite honestly, I'm tired of seeing people who aren't tech savvy being ripped off or misled when it comes to building a website. The stories I've heard from my customers leave me wondering how some of these design companies can even be in business. I have no interest in charging you for things you don't understand and I'm not out to get rich. I want you to ask me questions. I enjoy helping people get ahead in business because I know what it's like out there. It's not easy if you know nothing about I.T. work and it's intimidating to even talk about creating a website. I want to make "going to the dentist" as painless as possible. I want to know who YOU are in order for me to be able to create your online presence. You are not a number on a file or a faceless customer to me.
