Hi there, I am Willson Smith, a web designer and developer from Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I am currently entering my third year at the University of Western Ontario, Canada. I have been designing and developing websites for four years.
What do I know?
I am skilled in HTML/CSS authoring, keeping on top of web standards, JQuery, lightweight programming (contact forms, etc.), and interface design. I am in the process of learning Ruby, and know the basics of PHP and Python.
What I can do for you?
I am set to work alone or as part of a team to find the perfect solution to a project. I listen to what you need, and work with you to achieve that goal. We can work together on website designs, development, and many other problems faced along the way. I work to come up with creative solutions to any problem that may be in the way.
