Hi, My name is Keifer Furzland.
My strengths are communication, punctuality and exceeding your expectations.
My #1 goal will always be to align my work to your vision and satisfy all project requirements.
I work very hard to ensure that with every project I have clear lines of communication with the client, so we can both have a solid understanding of his/her needs and exacting vision of the project. I'm straightforward, fair and solution-oriented.
I've been an evening hacker for a decade and a half, an undergraduate Computer Science student for three years at the University of Minnesota, and have owned and operated a web design firm for two years. Now I'm building a location-independent lifestyle and building the web around me. I can also cook a mean brunch.
