I develop gorgeous user interfaces.
I am a front-end web developer in Houston, Texas. I'm happy to say that my day job feels more like fun than work. The greatest satisfaction I get from coding is knowing that I am making peoples' lives easier through efficient and user-friendly web designs.
I love serving others and I crave adventure (naturally, being hobbit-sized and all). In my spare time, my fiance and I like to code open-source projects together. I also love camping, baking, gardening, and writing.
I am employed full-time at Endurance International Group as a front-end web developer. There, I am enhancing customer portals for web hosting brands by redesigning their templates and building new web applications.
Where it all began...
I started out at Concordia University Texas in Austin as an average student worker - but I transitioned rapidly to a full-time position managing the entire University website. I have handled numerous responsibilities related to the University's main site and micro-sites, including:
- launching 3 fully-responsive sites
- providing customer service support for its distributed web environment's 70+ web editors
- setting up and tracking media campaigns
- tracking analytics and working with Google Tag Manager
- reorganizing site content and improving site navigation
I have also helped develop shortcodes for its in-house CMS, developed by Billy Eatman. Billy and I are now working on an open-source CMS derivative of this product, which you can check out on GitHub.
- Stylus, CSS Preprocessor
- ColdFusion and ColdBox
- PHP with Twig

Fully converted the University's main site to a new responsive design. This new design has a very user-friendly mobile menu and responsive tabs. Runs shortcodes. Has a consistent look and feel across all pages.
Completed May 2015
Designed this website as part of a Communication internship. As I collaborated with the CAN-DO Missions staff, I came up with the design and coded it with HTML, CSS and jQuery. The mosaics at the top of most of its pages were created using Masonry.
Completed October 2014
Created this responsive site on request by the University's Student Government. Members of student organizations are able to edit their organizations' content themselves. Has capability to run shortcodes and to customize the color scheme.
developing an open-source CMS, stay tuned!
I am contributing to the creation of an open-source CMS that runs on ColdBox (a modern ColdFusion framework) and AngularJS.
