HTML5/CSS3 Can Do That? Google I/O 2012 produced some great videos!

Just five days after my last post on Dec. 3rd annoucing my father’s passing, we lost my father-in-law suddenly. The past few months have been a whirlwind of shock and sorrow. The holidays were difficult and my sons have made it past their birthdays without their Grandpas, although not without lots of tears. But as we are well into the new year, things are looking brighter. I am pleased to say that I am incredibly happy at my new job with Platinum Innovation Group. I have decided that I will not be accepting any new clients from this point forward. I look forward to continuing to serve my current clients.

I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for their patience these past few weeks. As many of you already know, my father passed away on November 12th. It has been a difficult time since and many work related tasks have had to be pushed aside to focus on the family issues at hand. Your patience is such a gift to me and has helped me greatly.

To my current clients, I am still available to support your needs, however requests for new projects will be handled on a case by case basis. To new potential clients, I’d be happy to discuss your website development needs and will accept new projects as time allows. Work will be handled in the following order of priority:

New clients not referred by a current client Phone based support will be limited, so I’d like to request that everyone use email to contact me. Thank you to each and every client I’ve worked with over the years. I look forward to serving you for many years to come. I am unable to predict at this time when I will be able to return to full time freelancing, however it is my strong desire to do so.
