About Me

A little bit about me...

Franklin Dwayne McKie is my name. After a number of years away from the IT industry, as a career, I recently decided to get back into it. After random encounters with friends, I concluded that learning about the current state of Front End Web Design would be one way to return to the IT industry. A lot of things have changed since I wrote HTML code, in 1998, for a project in graduate school. I am very fortunate to have made this decision!!!

Hobbies - Interests

I played the clarinet and bass clarinet for nearly 10 years (ES/MS/HS) in the HS Marching Band, Symphonic Band and Orchestra. Also, I worked in the music retail industry for nearly 5 years. With a focus on Electronic and Dance music, I was able to give customers a wide-range of music to listen and purchase.

In HS, I played varsity baseball for 2 years. Also, I played Freshman basketball.

I have traveled along the East Coast, Deep South, California, Canada, and Europe (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Poland).
