PERSONAL NOTES
I am comfortable working with Microsoft WORD, PowerPoint Presentation, EXCEL and Web Design programs.  I have taken classes in Adobe PhotoShop, Fireworks, and am proficient in the use of Paint Shop Pro graphics design program.  I have created a number of websites and am comfortable working in that venue.

I have a strong personal conviction regarding proper health care practices for pets, especially for dogs and cats.  An outgrowth of this interest has resulted in the development and eventual sale of ThePetCenter.com and www.PrescriptionDiets.com.  I feel it is very important for pet owners to have a reliable source for rational information about pet nutrition and about modern veterinary care for their animals.   I am especially interested in Internet commerce and own over 30 top-level domain names including such active domains as VeterinaryMedicalImages.com, TheAnswerVet.com, and LogoJerseys.com. Some of these are generating revenue as affiliate websites.

Free-time interests include fishing and photography and hanging out with my two rescued dogs.
