I've been involved with web production since 1994, back when cell phones were the size of bricks and many of the kids on MySpace were still in diapers. Before the web, my background was in traditional print marketing collateral production and journalism, including freelancing for Diablo Magazine in the early '90s.
I made the transition to the web while I was editing the company newsletters for Maxis, the Sim folks (now Electronic Arts). My manager wanted me to look into something called the Internet to evangelize their products and promotions. In collaboration with Customer Support, IT, and Production, we launched the Maxis web site in May 1995.
After Maxis, I went on to develop and redesign web sites for top Bay Area companies such as Electronic Arts, Netscape/AOL, and PeopleSoft. Soon after the birth of my daughter, Sara, I started Moss Web Productions in 2003, and have since developed and maintained over 40 sites for businesses throughout the Bay Area.
Some people ask how I survived the dotcom bust of the early 2000s. It's fairly simple I really love producing web sites, which is why I stuck with web site production even after the "gold rush". If I were to win the lottery tomorrow, I'd probably still tinker with web sites. (Mind you, I'd also go to Hawaii on a regular basis. I'm not completely crazy.) I'm lucky enough I found something I can do for a business that I enjoy that much.
Moss Web Productions, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, specializes in developing, redesigning and maintaining custom web sites that fit with their budgets. See Services for more details.
