My career in programming and design grew from an early interest in fine art. In 2010, I enrolled in the Graphic Design program at Frederick Community College in Frederick, Maryland, and graduated with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Graphic Design. I also earned an Undergraduate Certificate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State World Campus.
In 2011, I began freelancing for local marketing firms, and my first client was WebsiteGrowers.com, Inc. In 2014, I joined WebsiteGrowers as a full-time employee, where I managed day-to-day operations for the enterprise of more than 100 small business and corporate customers. My responsibilities at WebsiteGrowers encompassed many aspects of the business, including user experience design, website development, search engine optimization (SEO) consultation, and customer support.
In 2015, I began traveling internationally, working as a remote independent website services contractor for a variety of U.S.-based marketing firms and small businesses. During this period, my principal client was Web Adaptive, a web design firm in Baltimore, MD.
In 2017, I established long-term residency in Thailand and continued working remotely for several U.S. firms. In 2018, I began writing original applications and released three WordPress Plugins that currently have more than 4,500 active users. In 2019, I released WeatherWorld, a native mobile app for iOS, written in Swift. WeatherWorld helps users explore weather conditions by climate type.
In 2020, I continue to provide design, development, and SEO consultation. I serve as the lead provider of SEO expertise and services for two US-based marketing firms and multiple small businesses. These clients trust me to demonstrate results, every month, in the form of rankings improvements and conversions.
In addition to SEO, design, and development, I also provide expertise in databases, website security, and website hosting configuration. Having worked with many small business owners, I am excited about planning, creating, and deploying applications that help businesses grow online.
