About

Hi. My name is Andrew J Hoskins and this is my web design hobby site.

I am a husband and a father. I want to provide the best and happiest life that I can for my family. When not spending time with my family or at work, I spend much of my time reading, writing, or watching movies & sports.

I also spend a significant amount of time trying to increase my knowledge, as such I became interested in web development and design and have been teaching myself the tricks of the trade. This website has been created to be my portfolio/sandbox. I will continually be updating the site as I create new pages, both commercially and personally. I invite you to check back periodically for updates.

I became interested in web pages partly because of my background. My education and general interests have always revolved around art and creativity. However, I also have a strong interest in business mangement. Put the two together and commercial web-design makes a lot of sense.
