about me

my photo

Hello! My name is Jim. My interest in website design started back in 2009 when I built my outdoor photography and pet services websites with Dreamweaver.

I installed WordPress on my pet service site in 2018, and a year later created my guitar chords site also with WordPress. I developed my WordPress theme (Tower) in 2020 and built my third website (Kernix Web Design) with that theme. Now I am focusing on JavaScript and web development.

I ran my pet service business for the past 13 years so I am a motivated and independent worker. I look forward to working alongside experienced developers and continuing to learn the craft of web development!
