I graduated from Skagit Valley College in 2004 and immediately fell in love with Flash ActionScript, building several games before finding my first development job in Bellingham later that year. I purchased KalinFlash.com shortly afterward, to serve as my portfolio site, planning to keep my career focused on Flash development.
However, I also do a lot of writing–personal stories, articles, blog posts, and science fiction stories and novels. In early 2010, after completing my third novel, I revamped my writing website, KalinBooks.com, giving the WordPress platform a try. After customizing my first theme, I found myself impressed with the organization, ease-of-use and extensibility, so I began developing plugins for my own use: Easy Edit Links, Post List and PDF Creation Station, which are now available for free download through WordPress.org.
In June 2011 I upgraded KalinFlash.com to the WordPress site you see now. This will serve as my portfolio. Development-related blog posts or in-depth instructions for my apps will most likely appear somewhere on KalinBooks.com.
