I am a well-rounded and self-motivated web developer with 11 years of experience. I primarily do freelance work but am seeking new opportnities to work in a team envionrment.

I was born in England and grew up in Southern California. I studied film making and interactive media at California State University Monterey Bay, where I also began my freelance web developer practice under the name of Bulb Media. I started out by working directly with small businesses to design brochure styled information websites. Overtime I have become more specialized in doing front-end and user interface design as a contractor in a team environment. I have had experience working as an in-house or remote front-end developer for several design firms, as well as directly interacting with customers to provide what ever web services they need.

I am most specialized in front-end development, but I have experience in object oriented programing, graphic design and project management. I am familiar with many e-commerce and CMS platforms such as Magento, Joomla and Drupal and am willing to learn new technology and skills after hours to provide the best quality solution.

Teledramatic Arts and Technology

This major focused on film making and interactive media. I complete many videos and websites that were short documentaries or multimedia presentations. The majority of my projects still have a web presence under the production name of Bulb Media.

The curriculum for Teledramatic Arts and Technology includes TV Broadcasting, Film Production, Multimedia, visual design, animation, motion graphics, interaction design, and mobile media. As a capstone graduation project I produced and edited a 12 minute documentary on Lucid Dreaming called Explorers of the Lucid Dream World. After graduating, I was able to sell enough copies of the DVD to cover the production cost and turn a profit.

I am looking for new opportunities and projects to work on. Is there anything I can do for you?

Sincerely,
Richard G. Hilton
