I began working in the web in 2007. At the time I was looking to move out of the hospitalities industry and was trying to find work in as a technical writer. A friend in the industry suggested that it would be benifical to me to learn html. Upon teaching myself the basics of html and css I found that I really enjoyed creating websites and began building sites for myself for fun and doing some small freelance projects.
At this point I still hadn't landed a permanent job as a technical writer and decided that I liked web design and development quite a bit, so shifted gears to start a career in the web. In early 2008 I enrolled in a web development & design certificate program at Seattle Centrall CC in order to gain the additional skills and credibility to find a job in the industry.
Upon completing the program at SCSS I began working fo USchedule, where I am still working to this day. My work there mainly consists of designing and developing small to medium sized websites for individuals and small businesses.
On a daily basis, the tools and technology I work with most are:
- HTML - Cross browser & legacy compliant HTML/HTML 5
- CSS - CSS 2 and CSS 3, as well as SASS and Compass
- CMS - DotNetNuke, Wordpress
- Ecommerce - CataLOOK, CS-Cart
I also have knowlege and experience in PHP, ASP.NET, C#, Flash (AS3), Java and SQL, and do some graphic and logo design.
Please contact me if you would like to talk about working together or to request a resumé.
