I began my career as a Graphic Artist. I picked up web design to compliment my
design skills. I have been designing free web pages since I picked up HTML back

Virtual Volunteering is great for me because I hate to drive and all the other
drivers on the road hate to see me driving I am sure. I also like the
opportunity to offer my services to help developing countries like mine.
