About Sykesville Online
Currently, Sykesville Online is mostly a two person endeavor, and here we are.
Andrea White – Editor and Website Designer
Since way back in the nineties, Andrea’s designed and built more than a hundred websites both as a freelancer and lead designer for a successful Internet company. She’s a graphic artist, a top-notch editor, an Internet software expert, one of the world’s best spellers, and a really good mom with two daughters.
Plus she’s quite good with WordPress, dogs, cats, and several other living creatures.
Although she used to run a website company called Sykesville Design, she’s focusing almost exclusively on Sykesville Online now, trying to make it bigger and better and possibly even profitable.
Jack White – Writer and Publisher
Jack’s a seasoned (salt, pepper, and oregano) Internet professional and award winning published author who can never find his glasses. (They’re on top of his head.) For the past 20 years he’s worked in marketing and technical communications for various high-tech companies and served as web manager for several sites in the Washington DC area.
He recently designed a web-based customer service site for the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, where he currently works as a contract technical writer for Dell.
He’s was once the principal writer on several blogs, including the Mobbie winning Sykesville Online, but now he’s focusing on finishing a book and improving Sykesville Online.
As a novelist, he was featured in the Washington Post, the Baltimore Sun, and Writers Market. But he doesn’t talk about the novelist thing anymore.
Cool things they’ve done
Jack and Andrea have worked together on several interesting projects over the years, from designing a website for Smithsonian Business Ventures to publishing a novel that won the first Writers Digest National Self-Publishing Award and ended up with Penguin Books.
Currently they run the award winning Sykesville Online community information site to entertain and enlighten the people of Sykesville and Eldersburg, Maryland.
