About Me

Hello, my name is Brian Kidd and I am a Web and Multimedia Developer. But what exactly does that mean?

Put succinctly, it means that I specialize in Web Design and Developing, Web Content Writing and Editing, and Audio and Video Production.

As a writer it means that I love to write and edit web content. I earned my first degree in Journalism from the University of Washington and was awarded The Excellence in Journalism from The Department of Communication. However, with regards to my career, writing is not the entire picture but a very important part of it.

As a musician and videographer it means I have an affection for audio and video production. Since owning my first Tascam 424 four track music recorder and also my first camcorder as a kid, I have been writing, recording and producing music and video content. Currently, I play and produce music in an electronic music act called Kylmyys and besides live performances we independently produce music for TV, film and radio and create music videos. However, like writing, audio and video production is not the entire picture, but a very imporant part of it.

Although I have a great affinity for the aforementioned fields, it was my introduction to the Web, and the many multimedia possibilities that it offered, that peaked my interest in Web Design and Developing. To create beautiful websites, some with pictures, music, videos, articles et-cetera, seemed like an impossible feat at first, especially since I had not written one line of code until I was well into my 20s. However, I bought an O'Reilly book about HTML, signed up for a Tripod account (yes I wrote 'Tripod') and as most noob programmers do, I typed in the phrase "Hello World!" into the text editor. Once I saw those words live for anyone online in the entire world to see, my eyes widened as I knew this would be the beginning of a lifelong dedication to contributing quality content to the Web, with both passion and precision.

After receiving a degree in Web Application Programming and several programming certs, the picture of my career path is complete. Currently my concentrations are on Front End Design and Developing along with UX Design. Please See my CV below for more information.
