Who Am I?
My name is Randy Ford. I worked for the Art Production Company, Chrishawn Associates for 13 years; working my way up the ranks from paper-making to silk screening, mounting dept., art assistant and finally Asst. Art Director.
After leaving for health reasons, I began spending my days tinkering around more and more on the computer. Although I have no formal training in web design, like most people back in the early days of the Internet, I started building basic websites on AOL and GeoCities. When asked to build a site for a local company, I expanded my knowledge reading about new practices from the World Wide Web Consortium w3c.org. Learning as I went from basic HTML with tables, to pure CSS sites and on to HTML5 & CSS3.
What Else Have I Done?
I guess I have two claims-to-fame online as of now. The first is my "Numa Numa is Everywhere" video that I made after I saw the original Numa Numa Dance by Gary Brolsma and realized that it truly was everywhere!
View it here on Newgrounds where I first uploaded it on 3/15/05 or here on YouTube (uploaded on 11/06/05).
My second claim to fame can been seen on my video page where one of my video entries won $10,000 in the "New Numa Numa" contest from newnuma.com!
I'm a very eclectic person; I like too many different things to ever settle on doing just one of them for long periods of time. I think that's why I like computers so much! Open up your favorite desktop publishing software and type a short story ... work on a Web site ... create a movie to either put on YouTube or for someone special ... or just play some games!
