2000 – 2003 – WEB MANAGER MIAMI – FL – USA
DUMONDE TRAVEL – www.traveldm.com
In middle 2000 I was working in New York and I got to know this guy, Andre Nunes who’s own a Travel Company in Miami and had in mind an ambitious Idea in mind for that time, that was to create the very first web portal specialized for South America Market and asked me if I could come to Miami to help him to start this. I started alone building a huge plain HTML site with no database, but in 2001 we hired a developer that had ASP and ACCESS knowledge. So we build the very first dataset driven web portal specialized in South America, which was very powerful back in 2001. Basically the very same database structure remains until today with only feel updates touches.
1998 – 2000 WEB DESIGNER NEW YORK – NY – USA
In 1998 I was 21 years old and wanted so much to go to USA and learn English and at the same time, find an opportunity to work on a business that I always loved, computers. Internet was pretty new thing at moment and was very attractive as it is today. When I first arrive in USA, I did not really work as web designer, I made several part time jobs in construction business and landscaping, but this last only for 3 months until I meet a lady that became my friend and introduced me to some friends. Franz Valla was a successful businessman that like me, one day had left Brazil to try his luck in USA, and got involved on Internet business and opened NYNET. I was hired to become one of his first web designers because NYNET was basically an ISP serving internet dial up connections for Manhattan based business. Unfortunately when the new broadband internet connection arrived, they was forced to shut down their activities in 2004
From 1998 to 2014, the internet evolved a lot, as well my experience. When I first started was just a note pad and a basic plain wrapped webpage. The html code had only feel tags and was very easy to learn. But things started to get little complicated and more fancier, and I could not stop to read articles and blogs to see what was new in the market and what the big guys was doing.
Today the web 2.0 brought a whole new internet world, no comparison at all with what I was doing in the past, but I still take advantage of my mistakes made on the past and be part of this evolution, take me one step ahead of the new generation.
What I can truly say for my skill is that my web sites are totally SEO friendly, with no use of tables, using only div tags on the code and CSS to give the skin look. Adding some Ajax features makes the web site more eye catching and the most call attention of the end user. With the use of CMS’s I give to my customers the freedom and power to do most of the things on a website without the knowledge of HTML or programming skills. Basically, what I deliver, it is a mix of tools that will make websites very dynamic and at the same time a good acquisition to the customer business.
