|Morgan Miller is an avid webdeveloper of database-integrated websites.
He has been the owner of ProVision Webdesigns and webdesigner for all ProVision
Webdesigns websites since the fall of 2000. Morgan looks to computer
technology as a passion, hobby, and a way to make a difference. Through
his newly written and constantly evolving Veterinary Content Management System,
he intends to help create a tighter bond between clients and their veterinarian
and promote client education, both while using the internet to generate
added income for the hard-working veterinarian. |
His story with computers began at the age of twelve with a PC bought for
his mother and him by his grandmother. The computer was originally
bought so that his mother, a seventh grade history teacher, could record and
compute grades electronically. Morgan, however, had some other things
to accomplish. A summary timeline of this history with computers is
||Morgan received his first computer,
an 8086 running at 12 Mhz in turbo mode. Disassembling and reassembling
any computer he could get his hands on, he was fascinated at how they worked
and routinely experimented from both hardware and software perspectives on
how to optimize the performance of those computers.
As a sophomore in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M University, Morgan
was first introduced to HTML code and was intrigued by the possibilities
that one could create with different combinations of text, images, and various
Finally having time to capitalize on learning how to create websites during
his junior year in the Corps, his first official website was created for
Spencer's Rocket, a local band led by his hometown friend, Rebecca Torrellas.
Morgan graduated from Texas A&M with a Bachelors of Science in Biomedical
Science and began a Masters of Science degree in the Veterinary Physiology
department in the Veterinary School at A&M.
Many websites later (mostly for TAMU organizations), Morgan teamed up
with four other BYX (Brothers Under Christ) brothers to form DRDweb.com
and MaximPC.com. Together with Jerrell, Louis, Ray, and Tom, several
months were spent designing business websites and building computers for
the public. It is during this time that Morgan first installed RedHat
Linux 6.2 on a 233 Mhz computer and was amazed at the stability of the Linux
operating system. Unfortunately, the venture did not succeed and the
five friends parted ways to pursue other paths. Not wanting to give
up on his newly found passion for business and inspired by the previous
partnership, Morgan formed ProVision Webdesigns and ProVisionPC later that
fall. Still a graduate student, he set up and ran a Linux server on
campus hosting his personal website which provided a base for learning the
intricacies of Linux and a place for unhindered writing of PHP code.
Morgan began Veterinary Medical school at Texas A&M. During
his spare time, he took the knowledge that he had accumulated and the many
scripts that he had written over the previous year and began to assimilate
them into the beginnings of what would become his content management system.
This new method of webdesign would, over the nest three years, evolve into
a massive project of hundreds of pages of PHP scripting code and similar number
of hours of effort.
Three different server hardware upgrades and four years later, Morgan
is still maintaining a Linux server on the Texas A&M campus. He
is in charge of the main SCAVMA (Student Chapter of the American Veterinary
Medical Association) server, which in addition to the SCAVMA website also
provides hosting for nine other veterinary student organizations. Morgan
is involved with TVMA (Texas Veterinary Medical Association) as a member of
the Technology Committee. Seeing a need for better web-presence for
veterinarians, veterinarian-client communication, and veterinary services
delivered through website and internet resources, Morgan has created a Content
Management System for veterinarians to capitalize on the vast possibilities
that a well-designed website can offer.
Currently, Morgan is a fourth year veterinary student in the College of
Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University. During the last seven
years, he has used many web authoring programs and languages that are popular
for creating high-end websites. His current and longstanding preference
is for the PHP scripting language that interacts with a MySQL database for
generating dynamic webpages displaying up-to-date information. Morgan
enjoys working with his Linux servers, making them do what no Microsoft server
could dream of doing. He has written several technical articles regarding
Linux and various software packages that run on the operating system.
In the end, though, what he enjoys most is the webdesign and programming.
Upon graduation from veterinary school, Morgan hopes to return to his
hometown of Victoria, Texas and continue to work for his veterinary mentor,
Dr. John Beck, in his mixed animal practice. While one might be skeptical
of the future of ProVision Webdesigns' continuance in light of his veterinary
career, that skepticism is assuredly unnecessary as Morgan is currently
working to create a Medical Professional's Linux Users Group to further
human and veterinary doctors' involvement with Linux and high-end webdesign.
As a practicing veterinarian, he will undoubtedly have the best website in
town and continue to raise the bar for veterinary websites. It only
stands to reason that he will likewise provide the same high quality website
for any veterinarian that wants to stay on top of what the internet can
provide for them.
