CSS Résumé Garden

Inspired by the CSS Zen Garden, I was determined to learn every CSS trick I could, and thought I could combine practice with a slight touch of self-promotion, so welcome to the multiple CSS versions of my resumé.

Each variant listed below uses the exact same HTML code you're looking at right now, but links to a different set of CSS, allowing for dramatic differences in layout, color, font, graphics, and more. Click on one of the links below to see:

If you wish to examine the CSS, the "(css)" link will open the actual corresponding CSS file for you!

This resumé was styled from semantically marked-up HTML using CSS. If you'd like to see how I did it, there is a link for the CSS file next to each list choice in the Style Switcher. If you liked my design work here, I'm happy to supply more samples and examples.

I also have a PDF of my conventionally formatted resumé, suitable for reading offline or printing. I know how to play by the rules, too! Right-click on this link, and you can download/open the PDF!

I'm also on LinkedIn.com, where I can be contacted, or you can email me directly! I look forward to hearing from you.
