Front-End Web Developer
Since the early 2000s I have managed web site and graphic design projects. Editing Myspace pages on a blank div layer was part of my early start into this love for web design and web development. This love for coding and design evolved into creating portfolio sites, working remotely to develop university websites in several US states, independent websites for the public sector and private sector. Client range from schools and colleges to design and marketing agencies.

Art Institute of Pittsburgh

June 2009 - May 2011

I studied Digital Design and Front-end Web Design. We delved into creating full websites, building website prototypes, crafting audience persona, designing with typography, building web applications using ActionScript (Adobe's version of JavaScript), creating client proposals and design mock-ups with Illustrator and Photoshop, and building interactive presentations.

Norfolk State University

Jan 1998 - Dec 2001

I studied classical piano performance. I won top soloist for their Jazz band during festivals. I managed the music technology computer lab. This is where I first discover my love for web design and web development. It all started with two books, "Hacking Myspace" and the Macromedia Dreamweaver book. . Those books started my journey into the world of developing website and interactive media, and designing digital visual art projects such as event fliers, custom social media solutions, and print design media.

Norfolk State University

Sept 1993 - May 1998

I studied music, mass communications, and music technology. I was introduced to Photoshop, and InDesign's predecessor "PageMaker during this season. ImageReady was the component to convert Photoshop website mock-ups into table based HTML layouts (an approach that is still viable for HTML custom emails, but not for modern mobile applications and web pages).
