My Web Design History

I began teaching myself basic HTML & CSS in the mid 1990's, long before the Internet was fashionable.

I have had no tertiary studies. I couldn't afford to and the people I worked for didn't believe in me.

After a few years hiatus, in mid 2019 I regained my mojo and started doing it again.

I am learning new tricks, therefore some sites have been redesigned many times!

If this bores you, scroll down to My Web Design Portfolio.
