Ursa Major

Hi, I'm Anne Finlayson and Ursa Major is the web design company I'm building. I've been coding small websites since 1998. I am interested in all aspects of website design and enjoy working with a variety of small clients on a free-lance or contract basis. I split my time between Ann Arbor and my family's un-named Lake Superior beach near Sault Ste. Marie.

As a long-time administrator and webmaster for a small, busy non-profit organization, I am very familiar with the challenges small organizations face in creating and maintaining effective websites. I am interested in all phases of website design and maintenance and can provide personalized service at affordable rates to individuals and small businesses and organizations.

That means I am open to the smallest of jobs. If you only need someone to update your website for a few hours a month or to have a blog installed or a short-term consultation about improving the functionality of a small, low-tech website, contact me and we'll talk about it.

I create hand-coded sites with an emphasis on usability, accessibility and compliance to web standards. My current experience includes XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, Flash, and PhotoShop image processing. I am actively involved in learning PHP and MYSQL and I like to play around with audio and video tools.

See the about page for a complete list of my Internet-related skills and services offered.

Other stuff? Hmmm. Kayaking, cross-country skiing, hiking, writing, playing the flute, taking classes, driving, hanging around with friends, internet cafes, slugging around on the beach, and fiber arts of all kinds. My personal blog is at ababsurdo.com. Feel free to check it out.
