Angela Buraglia used to be a makeup artist for independent film, but she left her career for one where she could work from home and raise her son. Although she only aspired to be a Web developer, unintentionally she became that and more. She is perhaps best known as the founder of DreamweaverFAQ.com which she still runs today with Daniel Short. Angela is the co-author of Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 Killer Tips with Joseph Lowery as well as a co-author of Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 Magic and has contributed in various capacities to various other Dreamweaver titles. Angela's future plans are to continue developing DreamweaverFAQ.com, to build and sell Dreamweaver extensions, and to continue her involvement in Cartweaver. Long gone are the days of applying makeup; now Angela applies her variety of skills to Web development.
