Who I Am

Web development. Web design. Writing. Those are a few of my favorite things. Writing was my first love since I could remember. I wanted to become a sports journalist, and at the University of Texas at Austin, I accomplished just that. I graduated in May 2016 with a journalism degree, working four years at The Daily Texan and covering the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. But during that time, I developed another passion — web development. I discovered a love for creating things, especially with code. I self-taught myself the basics, graduated with an Elements of Computing Certificate from UT and now work as a junior developer at a development firm. It’s been a strange journey, but it’s one that’s been worth it.

Web Development

Web Development

Web development is my passion. I love creating things with simple lines of code, and I love solving problems — both for myself and others. I know the basics — HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript — and continue to learn new technologies, such as AngularJS and React. I would love to help you with whatever web project you need for yourself or your business.

Web Design

Web Design

My passion for web design has slowly developed along with my passion for web development. While not a designer by trade, I continue to learn the ways of design, seeking out good website designs and incorporating them into what I do. I would love to help create a website design that makes you or your business look great.

Writing

Writing

Writing was my first love and it remains one of my passions today. The fun for in writing is getting to tell as story, whether it’s the story of an Olympian who won a medal or how a company solved a problem for a customer. If you have a story to be written, whether it’s in sports or otherwise, I want to help you.

Multimedia

Multimedia

Writing is my primary method of storytelling, but I also love telling stories through photos and videos as well. Multimedia storytelling can be incredible and it’s something I continue to learn how to do. If you need a story told through photos or a short video, I would love to help you out.
