About the Technical Reviewers

These reviewers contributed their considerable hands-on expertise to the entire development process for Inside Dreamweaver MX. As the book was being written, these dedicated professionals reviewed all the material for technical content, organization, and flow. Their feedback was critical to ensuring that Inside Dreamweaver MX fits our readers’ need for the highest quality technical information.

In 1994, he became interested in web design and hasn’t looked back since. Brad is very lucky and thankful for the support of his partner, Brenda, and children (Amanda, Aaron, and Megan) through his endeavors in this field.
