About This Site

WorldwidePenguin.com began in 2002 as an online scrapbook where I could share the adventures of my year away from college with my far-off friends. It was an amorphous, organic experiment, taking form only as I gingerly pieced together puzzling instructions from an online tutorial at HowStuffWorks.com. I more or less took a breath, closed my eyes, and pushed my fledgling site off into the the strange and awesome realm of cyberspace.

Since then, I’ve intermittently dabbled in web programming. Though I’m more interested in the coding behind the visual effects and functionality that define user experience, the ultimate goal is to become proficient in both user-friendly design and watertight development, so that one can inform the other.

I’m working on it.

This site now exists as my forum to share, vent, and ramble, all the while learning some web development alongside to keep up with the industry. If you have an idea for a project or would like to have a site built, feel free to give me a holler.
