I would like to continue developing great web sites and custom applications with ASP, HTML, VBScript, JavaScript, VBA, VB and SQL from my home office.  I offer extensive experience, team leadership and creativity in large and small projects and I thoroughly enjoy doing them.

Work Experience

President, Owner

1998 - Present  Webdraper Designs, San Antonio, Texas

      I have been fully self employed with my own company, WebDraper Designs since 2001. I create web sites and database applications.  These sites are developed in Visual Interdev, Dreamweaver or NotePad using ASP, HTML, MSSQL, MySQL or MS Access database integration and are currently in production. Many projects are continually being updated and improved.  I have developed online training courses, shopping carts, web based inventory control applications, custom applications in MS Access including one that was recently patented.  My area of expertise is the "content management system".

I also developed a document production system with VBA in Microsoft Word currently in production with over 200 users. Platforms: Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 Professional.

      As team lead at USAA with the Microsoft Transition Project, I contributed to the successful Legal Office of the Future project which transitioned OS2 and DOS based system to Windows NT and Microsoft Office.  I developed a main menu system in Word with a VBA back end to help USAA's staff counsel offices merge legal documents.  This system is still being utilized today.
