Art entered the computer field in 1978 and during that time he has done everything from computer operations to project management. In 1998 he decided that he was tired of working on accounting systems and then moved into the realm of business development. He got his CIW for web development and then went on to get an MCP from Microsoft for Front Page.

He already had extensive Photoshop experience which helped make the transition into a web developer much easier. This combined with his database experience gave him the ability to create websites which have visual appeal as well as functionality to make the website easy for the customer to maintain.

In 2005 Art scaled back a lot of his desktop support and decided to focus on his Business Development skills. It was a tough decision for him to turn that area of business away but it has paid off because it has allowed him to focus on what he loves which is business development.
