My Story

Work History

I started out at McDonald's doing the burger flipping thing at 17 years old. Many years later I started my career and got my foot in the door as a landing page developer for a company designing and producing landing pages for lead generation through form fills.

Following that I worked for a nationally ran corporate franchise that has operations in 38 states. I was the Senior Web Designer and Developer for the main corporate website as well as the franchise websites. I worked in the marketing department and worked on the re-branding of the company as well as designed publications and other marketing materials. I also dealt with our initial SEO setup and eventually worked hand in hand with an SEO firm on our on going SEO campaign.

I have been working independantly as a freelance web designer and web developer for over 7 years now starting my own web design business to facilitate my work experience and growth.
