to my web site. My goal as a designer is to create fast-loading,
to navigate pages. You will need to use a recent version of Internet
Explorer or Netscape. The pages don't always look right if you use
some other browser.
site is now in its third stage. The design of this page is from version
2.0 and it was also used as a template for the Version 2.0 home page.
As you go through my site you will see a variety of page styles, navigation
systems and color combinations--samples of different solutions to differing
design questions. Let me know which ones you like a lot and which ones
If you need me to create a site for you or to update the one you already
have please get in touch with me.

In June 2004 I left California and now live in Pensacola, Florida. For 30 years before this move I lived in Los Angeles. In 2001 I retired
after 25 years as a college admission officer. Now I have the time to
get involved in web site design. The site got going in April 2002. It
