Web Designer / Student

Hello! Welcome to my website. My name is Dan Acheson. I am currently a student at DMACC studying Graphic Design with a focus on Web Design.

Boomerangfish.net

This will someday be the future home of my freelance web design business. The website name was inspired by favorite Muppet charater, Lew Zealand.

When people think of web design I want them to remember www.boomerangfish.net.
