Experience and Continuing Education
I have my Bachelor or Science degree in Multimedia Design and Development. I have been doing web design and development for a while. It is something that I love and am very passionate about.
I had an internship while still in school that turned into a full time position. I worked with a successful web development company. I started from the bottom and worked my way up to project manager and then the production manager. I was managing 15-30 projects at a time. Doing the consultations, estimates, invoices, website mockup, designing and developing the website. I enjoyed guiding the clients through the process. I was with that company for about 4 years.
My family was in need of my attention and I didn't want to stop doing what I love. So I decided to resign from my job with the company and pursue my own business as a Freelance Web Design and Developer. I continue to do research and taking online classes for my education. I'm currently taking a Social Media Marketing class.
Skills & Software
About Me and What I Work With
Communication I really enjoy working with people. Learning about them and their company. Being able to use my skills to enhance their business. Organization I take and keep notes from all my meeting. This allows me to keep track of all the details. Details help with creating the estimate, invoices, website mockup and execution of the project. Team Player Yes, you are working directly with me. You are the client and I am the designer. This is your business and I want to work with you so that I can truly understand your business. Understanding your business will give me the knowledge to see what's best for your company. If a third-party is required for your needs I will make you aware of that and keep you updated. Problem Solving There are always going to be obstacles to over come. I know of many tools and resouses that are able to help with that. If a third-party is needed to accomplish a task I will do my research and keep you informed. Creative I have been doing web design and development for 4+ years. This is something that I love doing and that I am truly passionate about. I'm always looking for ways to help companies grow and appeal to their target audience. I'll always offer options that I believe will help improve what you already have. Software Skills The main programs/software that I work with are WordPress, Photoshop and Illustrator. WordPress is a Content Management Systems (CMS) that make a website user friendly and easy for anyone to make changes to it. Photoshop and Illustrator and great for creating and manipulating graphics.
Multimedia Design and Development
I attended DeVry University at the Fort Washington, PA campus for my Bachelor of Science degree in Multimedia Design and Development.
It started with the basics; HTML, CSS, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator and etc. Then progressing into Content Management Systems such as WordPress.
My class mates and I got to experience working as a team for a client. This got me very interested in the web design field. I got an internship in 2011 with a successful web development company.
All the education from DeVry really helped set me up for my future. That along with working for a web development company in my area. I further my education every day. Either by researching and trying new things. I'm also currently taking a Social Media Marketing class.
