Education

And How It Continues

The learning experience never really ends and that is part of what is so fun about this kind of work. The best examples I have of that fact are in this site and all its versions, plus of course in my “Work” page.


Final Projects
And other school work that I am proud of.

Contained in these pages, are examples of my best school work completed for classes at Milwaukee Area Technical College. I started off in the eCommerce/Web Administration program. However, after I got my first accounting book, I decided that a change was in order.

I signed up for the Visual Communications program, and I discovered that I had pretty much found my niche. I love working with good graphics, but I rediscovered that the web animation and programming is what I really like the most. I have learned that there is more to good design, then the pretty pictures. When it’s up on that computer screen, it’s gotta work right, and that’s what I’m into.


VICOM 1
Programming in SwishMax is a lot like programming in Macromedia Flash, so the transition from SwishMax to Macromedia Flash has been fun for me. I like converting SwishMax script to Flash action script and back again when I have time. Working with Macromedia Flash has really been helpful in cleaning up my script, and getting it all in one place so it is easier to edit later.

VICOM 2
This page is a collection of website templates, and graphic work examples that I have completed for various classes. In the website templates, I have tried to pay particular attention to writing clean xhtml, and css.
