Technology, software, gadgets...these all fascinate me. I can't help but try out new interesting software as it comes out. The more useful the better. I love finding that perfect program that solves a problem of mine or tweaks my computer to perform even better. I've worked with a range of software from the Microsoft Office Suite to Adobe products and am familiar with HTML and PHP. I have used my knowledge with these programs in graphic design and web creation for organizations (mostly non-profits). I have created and maintained a few blogs and am familiar with several blogging platforms and content management systems. Knowing how to use CMS systems has proved to be a powerful tool in my creation of group driven blogs and sites. I try to keep abreast of technology and software news by following sites such as Slashdot and Reddit.
