Looks like some sort of orb weaver - I want to say what we call a "banana spider" around here (because they come over in shipping containers of bananas), but the markings aren't right. Hmmmm..... In any case - awesome spider!!
It looks like a wasp spider. I think they can bite, but are not poisonous. We have a few in our freezer - my son is crazy for insects, spiders, etc. and is forever setting traps in our backyard. He or she is beautiful!xoxo michele
