I’ve been building and maintaining websites in 1999 when I took a handful of classes at North Seattle Community College in web development. I worked on websites as web master for the blues to do’s newspaper for the next 10 years and built sites for my blues bands, guitar lessons, and for friends bands and small businesses. I was mostly using Dreamweaver and designing sites in tables during this period.
In 2008 I moved to New York City to study sound and music therapy and began working for iTVk, a multimedia firm based out of Hoboken, NJ working on some of their small business clients websites as well as building a handful of websites for McGraw Hill’s education department’s marketing team. These sites were all built in WordPress and I specializing in WordPress at this time. I also began working for a political commentator at this time as a web support specialist, a role which I currently still perform.
In 2011 I moved back to Seattle and subsequently attended classes Seattle Central’s Web Design and Development Certificate programs and graduated with a Web Design Certificate in 2014. For the last 6 years I’ve continued a wide range of Web Support Jobs for contracts through Creative Circle and The Creative Group where I’ve worked for a wide range of small and large businesses building and/or maintaining their WordPress websites. I’ve also continued to work for clients as a freelancer with a wide range of duties such helping manage email and web servers, setting up google analytics and google tag manager, posting to social media feeds, integrating websites with social media etc.
