About Me

Who am I

Some know me as a Web Developer, some know me as a Graphic Designer, and some know me as a Front End UI/UX Designer & Developer.  So who am I really?  Well the truth is I am all of the above.  I have been focusing my energy on web development primarily because I want to excel in this area, it’s what I went to school for, and I enjoy using all of my talents to satisfy my clients.  I’m currently working full time for the Faegre Baker Daniels Law Firm developing websites, designing email templates, creating blogs, administrating many of our online resources, and working on special projects that require a mash-up of today’s newest technologies.  Ultimately I guess I’m a person who loves design, creating websites with today’s latest technologies, and enjoys giving clients good customer service they can appreciate to help them reach the next level.

Education

I graduated from Purdue University in December of 2004 with a Bachelors Degree in Computer Graphics Technology and a concentration in multimedia design.  I also minored in Organizational Leadership & Supervision.  Purdue classes made me efficient with various graphic design skills, as well as web development processes and technologies.  I plan to pursue a certification in Human Computer Interaction where I will become more specialized in user interface, user experience, and responsive design. In the mean time, I attend various webinars, online tutorials, and other online courses to self learn new skills and stay in touch with today’s trends.
