  Career Objective

 

Working on a contractual basis to provide and support Web Sites, Software, and Graphic Design Products of professional quality with my primary focus in the not-for-profit sector.

I have a strong commitment to the non-profit sector and want to provide professional products to churches and non-profit corporations. For the last 10 years my work experience has been exclusively for religious and other non-profit organizations. I have a great affinity for public service and believe that a professional appearance to the public is vital for their continued success.
