Michael Fitzgerald Resume/Portfolio

Michael Fitzgerald

I have over 15 years of experience in Web design and development and have completed a diverse range of projects, from small personal Web pages to large corporate intranets. My principal areas of expertise are information architecture, HTML coding (HTML5, CSS3, Javascript), and overall Web site organization and planning. I'm adept at taking ideas from clients or existing published materials and translating them into workable Web-based solutions. With strong expertise in graphic design for the Web, I craft interfaces that are elegant and pleasing to the eye, while highly functional and efficient. I also have experience in Web site-database integration and in using various multimedia technologies to add dynamic content to sites. Finally, I have strong experience in search engine optimization and getting sites to the top of search engine results for their targeted keywords.
