About Me

To Whom it May Concern,

In a nutshell, I’m a graphic designer who fell in love with web development. My fun, creative side is balanced by my analytic nature and it is this duality that makes me an invaluable team member. I love what I do and my goal is to land a long-term web design position on a team of people as passionate as I am.

I graduated in May of 2012 with a bachelor of science degree in graphic design from California State University Sacramento. Although I had been designing and developing websites since high school, it was during my time at CSUS that a random decision to enroll in an intro to computer science course re-ignited my passion for programming.

Just weeks after graduation my dreams were first realized as I joined the San Francisco Bay Area’s tech industry at Ning, one of the largest social media companies in the world. As a web developer/designer on Ning’s Design Services team, I wrote HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and JQuery which customized our social platform to meet the design needs of high-end clients such as IBM, Tom’s Shoes, Fox Sports and Ritz-Carlton Hotels.

My insatiable thirst for knowledge and creativity is what motivates me to improve myself with every day and every project. I am excited for the opportunity to meet the challenges that your industry has to offer and to bring my abilities and passion to your team.

Please view my online portfolio for examples of my work. I am available for an interview at your convenience and I look forward to hearing from you.
