floggingenglish.com started as a small Flash experiment several years ago since I wanted to see how easy it would be to build a basic blog in Flash. As it turns out, it really isn’t all that difficult, and thus PennBlog was born.
After a couple of small revisions, I decided to go to a full-fledged domain and changed the name to Flogging English. Still, the primary focus of the site was to keep in touch with family and friends who are now all almost 3000 miles away. Except my Pops, who lives in sunny Florida.
I’ve been a Web Designer & Developer for going on 20 years now, and I’m not ready to quit yet. I love what I do, and being part of the community that fosters the most creative designs around. I’ve had the opportunity to do freelance work, work with highly creative teams of folks with high energy development companies, and medium companies producing content for corporate sites, intranet applications, CD based software tutorials, video and the list goes on. I am pretty damn lucky. I have a great family, good friends, excellent job and generous employer. What more could I ask for? Okay… a million bucks. That would round it off. Thanks.
I’ve since bounced around the country a bit. Oregon, Pennsylvania, back to Oregon and it’s been a bit of a rough ride. I’ve had two liver transplants due to an overly aggressive disease called PSC which has done it’s been to really screw things up but I’m not letting it. The Pacific NW is my home, and I love working in Portland. Portland is full of amazing and creative popleand companies and lets me the work that I love to do.
