'Marlin is a leader – a clear, pragmatic thinker who can formulate a sensible plan of action that makes others want to follow him. His potential is unlimited and I have great expectations for him. It is rare that I find such a strong combination of both creativity and pragmatism in a single person. Marlin has made a very strong, positive impression on me and I give him my highest 'buy' recommendation.'
Creator - Concept to Reality
Aug 11 - Aug 11
This is my newest portfolio. I decided to get away from the incredibly heavy CMS solution and went with a streamlined HTML5/jQuery Experience. The content is all stored in a MySQL database, accessed with PHP's PDO library, and structured with functions from a class I've named 'resume.' The design is intended to appear simple yet elegant as to not distract from the information present yet still subtely impress with its faded backgrounds, light shadows, and grey-to-white palette. The site is intended to utilize as many of my talents as possible but some techniques and technologies would have been superfluous for such a small project. All files and pertaining to this project are avaible upon request.
