This page is my little corner of the world wide web. I hope that you learn new things, find inspiring stories, and, in return, share your stories with me! I will be covering topics like web design and development, the user experience, and my experience as a programmer.

My story starts back a number of years ago when I found myself unsatisfied with my career. I was bored, unchallenged, and had limited possibilities within that field. I decided that I wasn’t going to let that get me down. After some self reflection, I decided to start doing photography (I know…not development…stick with me here). I loved weddings and photography, so I started my own business. What was the first thing I needed after booking my first client? A website! Thankfully I had a friend who knew how to code, and he helped me start my first website. I was mesmerized watching him code and update my website with a few simple lines of code.  

It wasn’t long before I decided I to learn some code so I could customize my website. That first HTML class had me hooked, I moved onto CSS and JavaScript and found myself coding in my spare time for fun. At this point, my photography business was really starting to take off, but I realized that I preferred sitting at home working on my website more than I liked my time behind the camera. (I enjoy photography much more as a hobby now)

I specialize in HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, and front-end design. I have used frameworks such as Angular, Ember, and CodeIgnitor, to name a few (see a full list of my tech experiences on my LinkedIn account). I love WordPress and  know Drupal. Lastly, I prefer simple responsive designs that are user friendly.

If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them.

Network network network.  I know it’s been said many times before, but it’s important to know that networking doesn’t have to be HARD WORK. It’s just getting to know people.

How becoming a programmer has changed my views on being a user.

Back before I knew coding or understood web design, I rarely noticed when a website wasn’t structured well or when an app wasn’t clearly organized. Now that I understand what it’s like to be a user AND a programmer, I see things much differently. I find myself giving websites and apps more feedback on ways …
