Hello, my name Dennis. I have been freelance coding & doing web development since late 2006. I have worked at several websites doing administrative & development positions. Everywhere from Forum Moderator to General Manager to running my own websites.

I played around with code back in the day, just basic HTML stuff when I was still in High School... I didn't have internet at home yet, so I would hang out at the library after school and browse the web & find neat things to take apart & learn how it worked. Would view source code & download site pages for 'Offline View' & take them home on my 128MB flashdrive to play with somemore. Built a couple garbage sites from that (that I wish I could find just for memory sake).

I started in 2006 working for a gaming community GamingEmpires.com which at the time was about 6 years old; as a moderator for the America's Army forums. In turn worked my way through the positions & made Senior General Manager. In late 2009 the site closed as a result of one of the main investors passing away.

During my reign at GamingEmpires, I opened my own Online Radio station, Black Hawk Radio, which in turn got changed to WorkGamingRadio (when GamingEmpires changed to WorldGamingInc.) & ran that for a number of years... We closed because of the change to online media streaming laws.

From there, I did alot of freelance stuff, just working on forums to code & get their vBulletin templates finished & adding features on demand.

Worked for a couple graphics design websites, which was I think the funnest of them all... Shady-Designs & SigRequest.com

I ended up taking my Gaming Community experience that I got from GamingEmpires/WorldGamingInc. & applying at DGSemiPro (Now closed) working as Site Development helping with the construction of their ladder system as well as working with vBulletin system integration & such.

(Don't worry this ramble is almost over)

While working there I opened a website hosting company, which I think was my best creation yet... Sadly, I hit a speed bump in my real life & couldn't afford to continue paying for the services needed to keep it running & even sadder, it wasn't making me profit yet (2 1/2 years running). So I had no choice but to scrap it...

Now I am working on just a personal project just a home brew CMS & doing websites for my employer's clients. And of course, working for Mr Vollmer here at Nodak Angler

Okay, ramble is over :)
