Background in Art and Affinity for Technology

Green Schools Conference and Expo Website

With a background in fine art and creative writing, I bring a creative perspective and editorial eye to my web work. I am passionate about technology and learning as much as possible in this ever-changing industry.


My Story

Since my background is a little unusual, I’m usually asked how I got involved with working on websites. Well, here’s how:


1

I graduated with a degree in painting and creative writing. And realized…now what?

2

During my senior year of college, I worked on a project where I put together a portfolio website for my artwork. I taught myself HTML and CSS.

3

I remember how much I enjoyed putting together my portfolio website – learning new information, the struggle of getting things to work, and how proud I was when it all came together and actually worked!

4

I started working as a website consultant for a nonprofit. I continued to learn how to build sites and build them better. Later I found better work opportunities and took them, and learned new skills like how to build responsive websites.

5

And now I’m continuing to grow and learn. The web field is filled with endless possibilities to build different types of websites and applications. And I am hungry to learn as much as I can.
