About me / short description
Hey, I'm Neil Hanlon. I'm a Web Developer based in Rowley, Massachusetts, just a little north of Boston. I've been designing and developing web-based applications for a number of years, and I love what I do.
Besides web development, some of my hobbies and activities include
- Music. How do trumpet players greet each other? "Hi, I'm better than you."
- Cooking. I am a line cook for The Ipswich Clambake Co.
- Audio/Video. I'm a techie for my school's plays and events
- Gaming. Yep, that's right. I'm a stereotypical geek.

CollegeFest 2011 / Sponors Tab
I was responsible for coding and maintaining the Sponsors tab for CollegeFest 2011. This included multiple changes, and a little bit of Photoshop prowess. It was great to work for Mr Youth, as it dipped my feet into what a future career in this might look like.https://www.facebook.com/collegefest/
Michelle Binkely / Olivia Neill Pilates
This was a slice-and-code for a client I did some freelance work for. It was quite a simple process, but took a long time getting all the background images in their place, and working correctly in all browsers.http://www.olivianeillpilates.com/
