Over the last 19 years, I have been learning about the web and working on websites. My first website existed only on an old 100 MHz PC, and any images I had were either made by me or downloaded from the web onto a floppy disk wherever I could get access. I didn't have an internet connection at home, at the time, but I was able to get access elsewhere. My first exposure to raw HTML was within a book, HTML 4 for the World Wide Web by Elizabeth Castro, at my local library. That book started my obsession with building for the web and I'm still learning about it today.
I have been an Okie (Oklahoman) for the majority of my life and enjoyed growing up and living there. I now live in Japan and work as a freelance consultant, web designer, and developer.
Assisted and assisting clients with various design, marketing, and website related projects.
During my time at Sgt Grit, I worked on and helped manage various types of projects: art production (for t-shirts, coins, and decals), content management, email design and marketing, print and online advertising, web design and development, SEO, and SEM. I worked with a small and talented in-house team in addition to some remote teams during my time there. I learned a lot working with them, and I am grateful to have had such an opportunity.
I tried to spend some time everyday working on front-end development for about 28 days. It was a lot of fun and I plan on making it a daily activity in the coming months.
