How I summarize myself goes something like this. I ‘m a jack of all trades and master of none; in relation to computer design. I attach myself to that statement for several reasons. The main two being. I have cast a wide net In In relation to computer design, I’m a jack of all trades, and master of none. I resemble this statement for several reasons. I have cast a wide net on the creative field of computer technology and design. This net ranges from simple color corrections in Photoshop to writing hundreds of complex lines of code in a text editor. Curiosity consistently keeps me searching for new skills. When researching new ideas, it’s easy to realize how much there is to learn in this field.

I have three A.A.S. degrees: Multimedia Design, Web Design and Programming, and Computer Programming. Multimedia Design helped me realize that using technology to create was my niche. This was my introduction to Adobe software. Completely changing the way I looked at Graphic Design, UI development, and Video Production. The Adobe and Macromedia convergence solidified my interest in the Web Designing and Programming Degree. My video, graphic, and interactive design education would be a natural fit for the internet. I’ve used these skills to create websites and digital web videos with Flash, HTML5 and Javascript. Over the next six years, I worked as a Graphic Designer creating prepress files for print, 100 plus page catalogs, and websites. I wanted a new challenge, and an opportunity arose to expand my programming skills. Throughout my Computer Programming Degree, I studied a range of languages including; Python, SQL, Android Java, and C#. Aside from getting better at writing object oriented languages. Learning how to read these languages, and how they were executing was one of the most valuable skills I learned when earning this degree. Often explaining the program to a non-programmer, or even just working with an others code is what the project really calls for.

This is how I bring my management experience and technical skills together.

I constantly remind myself to value my talent, it has allowed me to remain focused and produce valuable outcomes. By producing valuable outcomes, others see this and will also have confidence in my abilities. With their confidence in my abilities, they are confident I will produce projects with the highest quality.  


Services Available to the Public

  • Web Design: from design to concept.
    • I advise on websites before launch. Many times it is more effective to just have a SquareSpace or GoDaddy Template site. I help ease the headaches of starting up template sites and avoid the higher expense of a fully custom site. Even Facebook can do the job sometimes!
    • When basic templates are not enough I do custom sites as well. Most of the time I will build a custom web site on WordPress to allow you—the client—to make the updates you need in the future. Starting with a prelaunch advisory meeting, and ending with a video tutorial. I can get you up and running on the internet simply and in a cost-effective manner.
