Danny Brown is a father, husband and Web designer/developer with over ten years experience working with websites and online applications. He lives in Ottawa, Canada.
Danny is the Manager of Web Services at his alma mater, Carleton University. His experience in both the Communications and IT departments has given him a broad perspective on the use of the Web in a large institution.

Danny’s greatest asset is his strategic vision, which enables him to be innovative and forward thinking in a Web landscape that is constantly changing.
