I'm John Gilbert

I am a creative that has focused on digital for the last 15 years. I started when Macromedia was new and Visual Basic 4 was hot. I taught myself the ropes, studied Computer Science in college (dropped out) and ended up getting a degree in design. Luckily, the internet came along, and my passion for the web was born. I have been combineing my interests in design and technology since day one of my career and I don't intend to do anything different in the future.
