Websites

As a professional web developer, I have worked on several projects over the years and have become experienced with the design, development, and deployment of web applications using the latest technologies. Being a web developer involves understanding both complex programming paradigms as well as having a creative vision to design an effective user experience. My programming knowledge primarily consists of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Python, Node.js, MySQL, and MongoDB. I am flexible with the tools at my disposal and am always open to learning new languages, tools, and frameworks. I have created websites and applications for various organizations as well as completed internships at local technology companies doing application development work. I have even submitted and presented my websites for national competitions, receiving several awards for my work in the web design field.

Graphics

As an experienced graphic designer, I work with both print and online media to create visually appealing designs and brands. I love to study and research fine typography, beautiful color schemes, and modern design layouts so that I can improve my own personal aesthetic skills. I believe having a clear brand and cohesive marketing strategy is imperative to an organization's success. That being said, I have collaborated with several student groups and individuals as a graphic designer in order to help better promote their goals. I am familiar with design software tools like Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign as well as digital SLR photography and photo-editing. I enjoy creating mockups, mockups, and more mockups in an iterative design process where I actively listen to client feedback in order to ensure their satisfaction. My knowledge stems from both personal experience and a formal study of graphic design in high school, and I have even submitted some design work for a state competition.
