About Paul Sherman

Defying those that considered the Internet a “fad,” and succeeding the dot-com bubble, Paul has been designing and building websites professionally since 1995. Paul launched his career selling Web services door-to-door to small businesses. His first big break was with a large advertising firm where he led the visual design of websites for corporate giants such as Mobil Oil, Washington Redskins and DeWalt Tools. In 2001 he was brought on with Nextel Communications to lead the implementation of their new corporate website. In 2003 he was hired by the Department of Veterans Affairs to support the user-interface development of a $50M online health service. While maintaining his career, Paul graduated summa cum laude, earining a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in digital art and animation. Before becoming self-employed, he was on assignment for six years with the Department of Defense, where he was the lead designer for the department website.
