Although I am young, I have been developing websites and web applications for nearly a decade now. I started out on Notepad, writing up HTML and CSS for fun in my spare time. It wasn't long before I had put together my own website in Microsoft FrontPage and posted it on Geocities.
I built websites for the organizations I was affiliated with. (Church, Boy Scouts, etc) I spent 2 years in the IT Development Department of Teen Mania Ministries. It was there that I learned all about Application Development, Database Development and Code Maintenance.
Since completing that internship, I have been a freelancing web developer, working under the name "DesDev". I also currently work for MediaFire.com where I do web development work of all sorts, mostly in PHP and MySQL.
Additionally, I am a huge supporter of open-source software, so I contribute wherever I can. I am an early-adopter of all sorts of new technologies, making sure to try something brand-new with every project I undertake.
