Hi, I'm Gabriel Ross. I designed and have been maintaining GRSites.com since 1997.
Now you know where the "GR" in the address comes from! :-)
I live in Montreal, Canada, with my lovely wife Kaamini and my sons Nathan and Alexandre.
I am actually a scientist by training, I am completing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at McGill University.
Our laboratory focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of memory in the brain.
This web site began a decade ago when I found myself having trouble finding a good background texture for my first web site (long gone!)
and realizing that the internet needed a good comprehensive archive of textures for use in web pages.
So I made one myself, and since then it seems to have become the most popular one.
I also created a fonts archive and one of sound effects.
Eventually, features were added that allows you to customize the background textures in interesting ways.
And more recently, I created the
Logo Maker, and
Menu Maker features which have proven very popular indeed.
There's a whole lot more in progress at GRSites.com that you won't find anywhere else on the web, at least not for free:
realistic 3D logos, complex animated Flash logos and menu systems, beautiful new button types, all fully customizable.
I hope you enjoy the site as much as I enjoy making it for you...
