It was out of Omar’s musical activities that the need to learn multimedia design arose. Omar began down the road toward becoming a web developer advocating web standards like XHTML/CSS and then developing websites with Flash elements in 2000. Today, Omar builds rich media applications leveraging the Flash platform with technologies like Flex, Adobe AIR, Flash Media Server, and one of the few people in the world to have received official Red5 training. A few times a year Omar teaches courses at the Rich Media Institute in Los Angeles.
