About George

The internet can be a wonderful and exciting place for web designers. I make my sites using techniques that make the sites pleasant to view, easy to navigate and that represent my clients in a positive and functional manner.

Some of this is fairly easy to do with HTML, CSS, Javascript and others. Some is not so easy and assistance is a great thing to have. I am fortunate enough to have had wonderful help in my design career from associates. Sometimes it's a small a thing as: "did you put that comma in the right place?" to a long list of bits of information that have to be presented in a particular order for them to work.

I'd like to be able to share this way of working and learning with others traveling a similar road to mine. Please consider me as a tutor for your work.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Adobe Photoshop

I use Photoshop mainly for the web. Optimizing images is very important for that and Photoshop does it well.

Dreamweaver

I have been working in Dreamweaver for 8 years. I find html to be a simple and easily communicated concept and css initially simple but can become very complex as you start to be specific with it. I started on Dreamweaver CS3 and am now working with CS5.5.

General Music

I have been a saxophone player, composer, producer and band leader for over 30 years and have toured with my bands and other in North America and Europe. I was a 2003 McKnight Composer's Fellow, City Pages 2003 Jazz Musician of the year and have many positive reviews to my credit. I have performed in the Berlin Jazz Festival, The Kool and JVC jazz festivals in NYC and at the Walker Art Center with my bands, to mention just a few. My awareness of learning music is heightened by the fact that I only started playing the saxophone when I was a senior in college. I love the opportunity to share the knowledge I have gained over the years.

HTML

I have created websites that use HTML, CSS and plenty of Javascript and the jQuery Library plus audio and video.

Saxophone

I have been a performing musician on the saxophone since 1979. During this period my knowledge about the saxophone and music in general have deepened and expanded. I love sharing what I know with others at all levels. I can help with playing and learning the saxophone in general and jazz and blues and more.
Awards:
2008 Jerome Foundation Composer’s Commissioning Program
2003 Jazz Musician of the Year by The City Pages.
2003 McKnight Composer’s Fellowship

Web Design

I produce and develop web sites using Dreamweaver as my major tool. I've designed over 20 sites and have used Google Ad Words to promote some of them. Wed design can be a complex undertaking and while I do use Dreamweaver it's also important to be able to look a the html code and understand it's meaning. I believe that the easier a site is to navigate is essential to good design.
