Summary

I graduated from Biola University with a BS in Business Administration and an emphasis in the management of information systems. I hope to advance my career in WordPress Web Development and Information Technology. Over the past 10 years I have had various technical experiences such as web development, web design, web hosting, programming, networking, multimedia and sound production utilizing various tools such as Adobe Web Suite, shared and virtual private servers, and other technical equipment. These experiences have given me the knowledge and expertise in a wide variety of skills and have taught me how to diagnose, troubleshoot, and correct issues that arise. Also for over 3 years I have worked at Disneyland on large and small teams providing exemplary guest service. I love exploring new technology and new techniques and am a fast self-learner.

To showcase some of the different technical projects I have worked on, I created an online portfolio. Examples of my work are available at http://portfolio.michaelwatsononline.com.
