Hi, I'm Leo Newball, Jr; and I believe in three things: Development, Design, and Data. I believe in the power of Web Development, and any solution can be conquered using a breadth of web-based tools and technology. I believe in the power of great Web Design, believing that both the code and the presentation can be well-organized, presented, and provide amazing experiences. I believe in the power of asking questions, performing Data Research, analyzing the results, and presenting them in ways best disseminated for public use.
