A. Write a bio of your life thus far: (in Word or Text Edit)

* Name and Address | Education | Experience | Skills | Hobbies | Family, etc.

* Choose 5-6 images from the web that you think describe who you are, shape your interests. If you have your own images posted on facebook, myspace, youtube, or anywhere else you may also use those. You will build a home page around these images.

* Create a wireframe (mock-up) web page layout for yourself based on the information and images you have gathered, (this can be done with pencil and paper or using Photoshop or Illustrator). Think about your “identity”: graphics, images, a color palette that relates to who you are, what you’re about, how you would like to present yourself in a web community.
