Hi, I'm Fred McHale. The Online Director for the School of Web Design & New Media at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. Besides this role I am also a freelance web developer. I began my career doing freelance web development and design in the mid 1990s before attending California State University Bakersfield. Graduating in 2007 I received a degree in Computer Science he decided to focus my energy on the area of web technology. I've worked with many clients including Cisco Systems and other Silicon Valley Startups. In my spare time I enjoy playing guitar, performing improv, and getting outside as much as possible.
