Alex

My name is Alex, and that's a nice blurry picture of me in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, home of the Florida Gators. If you were curious, yes, I am the creator of this site. One day I was enjoying a nice television program about Area 51, so I decided it would be a nice idea to put together a site on the subject. After a semester of hard work, this is what we've got.

I'm an Advertising major, but I also do a lot of PR work and I dabble with computers. I'm a busy guy between school, job and internship, but I also like to let loose and get my dance on when the weekend rolls around. I'm a senior, and I'd like to get a job at an ad agency, hopefully doing something I'm good at and can get paid lots of money to do. If all goes well, I'd like to start my own agency after a few years in the business and become my own boss. A swank company car will be included, of course. I like to succeed at everything I do, so I work extremely hard. Unfortunately I'm not yet satisfied with my CSS/XHTML cosing skills, but I think I did alright for a beginner. I'm going to keep on practicing until I have some good looking layouts ready to go. I'm also saddled with the burden of not being a very design-savvy person, so it's tough for me to get a solid layout going, but that's just one of those you have to deal with.

I built this site for my MMC3260 class, and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. I learned HTML way back in the 90s and was familiar with table-based design, but once real standards-compliant design entered the world, I was left behind. This class was a great way for me to get back on the web-design horse, and learn how to avoid using 1500 nested tables just to get a bulleted list to line up properly. It was a bit shocking at first using stylesheets and CSS instead of tables and font tags, but now that I've gotten some experience under my belt, I can't even imagine how we did it the old way. What a headache. Thanks to standards, making changes to a site is now just as easy as one edit to one stylesheet, and we're ready to go. Thank you, CSS!
