Who am I?

I'm Hans Morehead, a freelance web designer/developer and avid garner. I've been playing around with websites since almost as long as I can remember, probably since around "the birth of the Internet". I'm mostly self-taught by researching how to do things and reading online guides. By the time I took programming classes I didn't get much extra out of them except a piece of paper saying I passed. I started out by working on my personal sites using them to experiment with designs and development techniques. Over the years I try to hone my skills and learn better ways to use them. Along the way I've picked up better coding habits and try to have valid W3C standard compliant code. I also play with making my sites have better accessibility for current and older web browsers. This isn't always easy but it's worth the challenge.

I started my web career at a local email marketing company. I spent over 2 years designing and implementing e-mail campaigns. I also helped out with website development. This is where I started getting more into PHP scripting and MySQL and found I liked these more than just designing. After leaving that company I've been working more as a freelance designer working on email and websites. I've also gotten more into photography. I am putting together a collection of stock photography together to make it easy for other designers to get good photos. I'm putting together this site to show what I've worked on and what I'm currently playing around with.
