More About Me
My name is Stephen Miller and I'm located in Baltimore, Maryland.
I live what I'd like to consider a normal lifestyle. I've have been married for 9 years and have a 7 year old running around at home. When I'm not chasing my son, I work a full time management (19 years management experience) position at a Nursing Home Facility managing the Environmental Services Department (that's the professional way of saying Housekeeping and Laundry).
I am a freelance web designer / developer. I have worked for both small business and personal websites. Initially, the idea of designing websites was just a hobby. Till this day, I guess I could still call it a hobby, since I'm not designing full time. Ultimately, getting an opportunity to work full time as a designer or developer is the goal.
Why Bony Bean?
Let's see...my name is Stephen Miller (not exactly a rare name). No chance of using my own name. And finding a domain name that represents who you are isn't an easy find anymore. After hours...days...weeks of trying to find a domain name, I tryed bonybean.com. Here's how I figured out the name. I'm six feet two inches tall and weight in, on a good day, 150 lbs. That makes me a pretty skinny guy (It should be noted - I eat like I should weight 300lbs). I figured I make a good representation of the term 'bony beanpole', so I decided to go with it. And that's what Bony Bean means to me.
College: Bachelor of Science - Information Systems Management (University of Maryland Universtiy College, 2017)
Associate of Applied Science - Computer Information Systems (2015)
High School: Carver Center for the Arts (1998) - Focus on fine arts, photography, and graphic design.
As far as all the techniques and skills I use in my web design and development, I have self taught myself all the different areas in which I'm experienced. I continue my personal education of web design/development by studying other peoples works, reading lots of tutorial books, reviewing online tutorials, and lots of practice.
Safety Innovation Award | 2009
Leaving the name of the company I work for blank (not sure if it's a copyright issue)...I received this award for assisting with the development of an online safety training and tracking system to be used company wide for approximately 250,000 employees.
