Education & Web History

  • 2012
    I spent my entire Winter break in college building a portfolio.
    While my other TV broadcast classmates used a free blog, I went out and purchased my own website host,
    and edited a WordPress theme. I was offered by the professor to present my website in front of the class the first week of the semester.

  • 2013
    The portfolio I built, spawned a volunteer opportunity for a film fest.
    A friend introduced me to someone who frantically needed a website for a non-profit local film fest.
    I garnered my new skills and had a website up and running before the screening.

  • 2013

    I graduated from UNF and started a job just two weeks later.
    In college, I took on three internships, one was required and you were allowed a maximum of three more. I considered doing one more internship until I heard the words, “you got the job!” My first job dealt with uploading files and photoshop work which landed me at Web.com

  • 2015

    My custom-built WordPress site and Photoshop skills landed me a job at Web.com
    After working in video production, I yearned to work in web design and development. One of my jobs involved placing videos on the site and using FTP. I also learned Javascript own my own because I wanted to build web apps to increase productivity, I joined Web that fall to work on websites full time.
