Some learned to type in a classroom or through a popular lesson software such as Mavis Beacon. Being exposed to computers at an early age I learned to type simply through immersion. This early exposure to technology had me set on a path of self-teaching; what started as a hobby of messing around with animated gifs to post on my favorite Nintendo internet forum lead into a serious interest into understanding how these web and imaging technologies worked. Upon highschool graduation, I was already taking community college courses in interactive media, which sparked a focused interest in programming when I enrolled in a university. As much as I enjoyed programming, I could not deny my passion for the arts and was struggling to find my place in a technological profession. However, upon my final graduation, backed with my education and experience, I re-discovered my love for design and realized just how perfect a career in web development fit my experience. My goal is to grow as a professional and do what I love to do most: make cool things.
I focus largely on simplicity and functionality. I believe the best way to make something look great is to not overthink it. I care about color coordination, and ease of navigation; using familiar design elements to guide the user with as little confusion as possible. I love responsive buttons and I believe that a mobile-first design strategy is necessary for today's web design. These things cannot be ignored.
