I began my career as a computer designer in Adobe Flash as an aspiring animator. I eventually taught myself coding languages like Actionscript, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and MySQL. I've completed numerous personal projects to advance my knowledge with web design aswell as many freelance projects for different people requiring small websites for their businesses or families. You can see some of my work by following the links below.

Freelance Web Design

When my friend, Christian, told me he needed a website that would elegantly host the media of his portfolio, I helped him out. Christian is able to maintain all of his site's content himself using a backend interface known as Wordpress. This includes videos, photo albums, curriculum vitae, blog posts, and contact information.

Fishsticks Magazine

Fishsticks Magazine
School Project

This is a website that I created for an art magazine we were making in our class. I set up a submission system that would have submitted art automatically be displayed on the website. I made that system with PHP and MySQL. Unfortunately, this site is no longer in use.

Teacherme.net, Studentme.net
School/personal project

Work on this site began in January 2011 after realizing my teachers' increased awareness about the power of using the Internet in their teaching. I came up with the idea before I had ever heard of an LMS or 'Learning Management System', which is what this site is.

The main idea with Teacherme.net is to allow teachers to post school information and resources - such as assignments, references, discussion questions, agendas, etc. - online and in an organized fashion that can be easily accessible for students via the sister-site, Studentme.net

One thing that makes this strapping duo stand out: A system that allows teachers to estimate the time that would need to be spent on each assignment. Students, upon handing in work online, would be able to privately and honestly report the amount of time that they actually spent. This would allow teachers to look at each student's profile individually and be informed with how much homework time is expected from that student by a total of all their classes on a day-to-day basis. Teachers would be able to collaborate on their scheduling of homework to allow students the maximum time for each assignment.


Old Portforlio Site

Old Portfolio Site
Personal project

This is my old portfolio website. I created it with Adobe Flash. Flash is a wonderful medium for easily creating visually unique and interactive websites. Alas, maintaining constant updates to a Flash site becomes a tedious practice. That's why I condemned the site and began work on this new one.
