Sean R. Nicholson

Sean R. Nicholson is the Network Administrator and Web Developer for the Career Services Center at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Sean has a Juris Doctor from UMKC, but opted to follow a career path in technology rather than law. Sean has been working with computers since the day a shiny new Apple II computer showed up at his house when he was twelve (eighteen years ago). Sean began building Web pages using Notepad and has been developing sites in Dreamweaver after version 1.0 was released. In addition, he has used Drumbeat and UltraDev extensively in both Web-based and Intranet-based projects. Sean's technical publications include Discover Excel 97 (IDG Books) and Teach Yourself Outlook 98 in 24 Hours (Sams) and he has written several legal articles ranging on topics from Canadian water rights to the protection of historic artifacts lost at sea. When he's not glued to a computer, Sean spends time with his family and friends, devoting most of his time to his wife and his two-year-old daughter.

Sean is currently using UltraDev to further develop UMKC's Virtual Career Fair and is building the first interactive Virtual Career Center using Macromedia UltraDev, Flash, and Fireworks. Feel free to contact Sean at seannicholson@kc.rr.com.
