First Day of College
In the Fall of 2010, I started my college career as an Electronic Media major at the University of Cincinnati: Blue Ash College. I've learned so many skills that I can apply to web design and development.
First Web Client
After picking up the ways of the code, I moved away from class projects to client work. My high school needed a new website for their booster organization. This new website brought their online presence into the 21st century.
Towards the end of my time at UCBA, I received the Web Director's Award for my degree project. This award is presented to the student in each discipline with the most professional project.
Achievement Unlocked: Earn an Associate's Degree
Hardwork pays off. In May, I was the first person in my family to graduate from college.
Started Working at Hobsons
After graduating, I started working at Hobsons Educational Solutions as a web developer. I worked closely with the Director of New Media, producing interactive mirco-sites for various universities around the country.
Launch of First Major Project
Months after being appointed Bearcat Media's first New Media Director, I launched my first major independent project. This was the first project that had me manage a small group of people in different departments. The website gave a fresh look to the organization and boosted online rankings.
In April, I was recognized for my leadership and work ethic as Bearcat Media's "Director of the Year." This award is presented to the director that goes "above and beyond" their primary duty.
Launch of First Corporate Website
In the summer of 2014, I produced a website for the Indianapolis based software company, InfoDynamics. InfoDynamics was the first corporate website I produced; which was heavily optimized for SEO and web performance.
Started Working at Upright Communications
A growing clientele means a job opening! In March, I accepted a job at a Cincinnati digital marketing agency, Upright Communications. I worked as a web developer and video editor working with some fantastic and talented people.
Achievement Unlocked: Earn a Bachelor's Degree
In late 2015, I walked across UC's stage and graduated forever a Bearcat with a BFA in Electronic Media. Go Bearcats!
Started Working at KalioCommerce
KalioCommerce is a web design company based in California that specializes in e-commerce web design. As the front-end developer, I would build client websites on Kalio's cloud based content management system.
Started My Own Business
In May of 2016 I started my own web design business, Parsec Digital Media, LLC. As the founder and main web developer, I work with clients so I can understand their needs and create a product that best represents them.
Published My First Plugin
LeftyRighty.js is a jQuery plugin that can detect important elements you specify in a row and flip them! This plugin was developed for people with physical disabilities in hopes to make the mobile web easier to use. I am consistently working on improvements. Please fork the repo!
Started Working at Drees Homes
I currently work as a Front-End Developer at Drees Homes. We build interactive single page applications with AngularJS for Drees internal use. I work closely with back-end developers to tie in data to the front-end. These apps are used by builders to build custom homes.
