Student and Client Web Sites

STUDENT COMMENTS

These are are few of the sites that were either built by my students; have been build for my students; or that I have built for clients. It is my hope that you will see that "ordinary" people can learn to build web sites if they have the time and the "wanna." If you have taken one of my classes and would like to have your web site added, please contact me! I do reserve the right to decline your site, based on content.
