About Me & This Page

Hello and welcome to Jimharney.com! This page is designed as a brief overview of who I am and what I do. This site is also a gateway to my many other sites and hopefully you will find some other useful and interesting information here.

I am Jim Harney, a musician and web developer based in Williamsburg, Virginia. I am an educated musician, arranger, recording engineer, audio technician and MIDI sequencer. I have worked professionally as a musician on saxophone, clarinet, flute, drums, bass, and keyboards for nearly 30 years. I currently play in several bands (see links below) in the Williamsburg/Hampton Roads area. I also enjoy arranging and recording and have done arrangements for numerous types of groups. In addition to many years of freelance work, I worked at Busch Gardens for 20 years as a musician, stage manager, audio technician and music supervisor.

In 2004, I made the decision to leave Busch Gardens and go to school for web design. In 2006 I earned my AAS degree in Computer Science in Web Development from ECPI College of Technology. Shortly thereafter, I began working for the Williamsburg-based web development company NetSenses, Inc. In addition to my work with NetSenses, I also work as a freelance web developer with my company Jazz Harmony Designs. I enjoy all aspects of the web development process including graphic design, html, css, client and server side scripting and database development.

Please look around and feel free to visit my many sites listed below or click on any of the rss links for related information.
