This is where I began!

When I first began my career, I started out as a Digital Marketing Specialist and Graphic Designer.  As I grew professionally, I learned the fundamentals of appealing to users and creating a design based upon who the target audience is.

The skill sets that I obtained earlier on in my career were stepping stones to pursuing a career in front-end development in 2014.

Front-end Development

Early on in my career, I often heard people say that developers speak an entirely different language and sometimes communication is not always 100% clear. Keeping this in mind, communication became an essential part of my everyday work life, especially when working with a team on projects. 

MY WEB TOOLS:  HTML5, CSS3, SASS, JavaScript, ES6, JQuery, React, Vue, Babel, Bootstrap, Webpack, PHP, NodeJS, APIs, GitHub, Git Bash, WordPress, Google Adwords, Google Analytics

Creating An Amazing Experience

While conceptualizing an idea, I am always thinking of how the user will have an experience that feels simple, pleasurable, and engaging.  Making an experience memorable is essential to maintain a large influx of web traffic.

Before beginning a project, I often create wireframes and user experience mapping to fully conceptualize the experience the user will have before beginning to code.

MY DESIGN & TESTING TOOLS:  Sketch, Invision, Adobe Suite (Photoshop, Fireworks, Illustrator, InDesign), Moqups.com, OmniGraffle, Survey Monkey, Visual Website Optimizer, HotJar.com
