John SimmerIn 2001 I established partnerships with several startup nonprofit organizations at Concordia University St. Paul and provided their initial web presence. Chief among them is The Center for Inclusive Child Care with which I am still involved.

In 2003 I formed Webartisan.biz and expanded into freelance web development for businesses and various nonprofit organizations.

In 2003 I also partnered with BensonIT and developed an online distance learning and training platform for the Minnesota Child Resource and Referral Network (MN CCR&R). That platform continues as a robust elearning resource for early childhood educators throughout Minnesota.

In 2006 I created Web Learning Solutions Inc. with Greg Benson and continued with various development projects including a new online resource center and elearning platform for the Minnesota Humanities Center.

Today webartisan.biz continues with forward thinking freelance web design while Web Learning Solutions develops database driven platforms for business and nonprofit organizations.
