He enjoyed great success at the school level as a slow left arm spinner and decent right hand batsman. Even up to today there is a team photo with him in it in the school main hall, helping his school become Under-15 champions.
One other thing Clement was interested in, was computers. At school he was always into them and the things it was capable of doing. When he got his 1st PC he was into allot of games, music and other things. A while after, he took a liking to websites, and began trying his hand at building some. It wasn’t soon until he realized he was getting good at it, and decided that this was his career choice. The internet was still new and unknown, so it was a good time to get into the website development field.
After school Clement was always working. He did jobs like, butchering, printing, painting, landscaping and even warehouse work. His first website job was from a company called Fun N’ Sun Publishing. They produced a directory called the “Caribbean Professionals Directory” which was basically a directory of professional people, included doctors, lawyers, architects, contractors and other certified people. He created the online version to that directory and also another website called “CouCou and Flying Fish”. This was also a directory listing the small business in Barbados like Hair Salons, Boutiques to name a few. After maintaining those two websites for about a year, Clement decided to move on to a company called “Acute Vision”, a graphic design business. He gained great experience and knowledge during his 5+ years there. Allot of the work in his portfolio was done there and credit is given in the descriptions.
Clement did a lot of websites and multimedia work for high profile organizations, ranging from local, regional, even as far as England. Be sure to check them out in the website section of the portfolio.
Websites were not the only thing Clement was into, he branched off into other related fields such as video, graphic design, audio and flash animation. These others skills are necessary in the rapidly changing web development scene.
