    I have been working with computers since "day one." My focus, until 2007 was primarily for print production. With consumer demand moving toward web and electronic devices, my focus has concentrated more on converting print documents to web standards (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript) as well as creating web pages using Dreamweaver and Business Catalyst. I am currently using Adobe DPS Single Edition, iBooks Author, and XCode5 to publish to iPad and iPhone. For ePub and Kindle .mobi, I add custom CSS to InDesign's export to ePub. For word processing I use Adobe InCopy, MicrosoftWord, and TextEdit. Other applications I use regularly include: Photoshop, Illustrator, and Painter.
