My strongest technical skills currently are coding HTML5, CSS3 and Photoshop. My strongest personal attributes currently are my can-do attitude, my unwavering confidence under pressure and my genuine love of people.
Currently, I am the Web Master at WhiteRaverRafting (an electronic music journalism site). What began as a just a hobby and a dream, became one of the best learning experiences I could ever ask for when a good friend asked me to join the writing staff at WRR nearly 3 years ago.
After a year of traveling the music festival circuit reporting on events, maintaining our social media outlets and conducting interviews with some of the best artist in electronic music – we all agreed it was time for a website overhaul. As the only web developer on staff, I was completely entrusted with this task and in doing so I assumed the role as their web master.
Since I began working for WRR our average daily sessions have increased over 180%, we’ve gained over 15k Facebook followers and we’ve expanded our audience from a small following in the DC area to a worldwide influence. My responsibilities include everything from reporting and analyzing the Google Analytics data to SEO, ad placement and innovation.
On top of managing all of the web needs for this side project, I’ve been developing websites for over 6 years in the DC metropolitan area for not only government agencies but also the private sector. I’ve created email campaigns for non-project organizations, e-commerce websites for as seen on TV products and everything in between.
My experience in the web development field has molded me into something of a jack of all trades over the years and my boundless curiosity about the internet ensures that will never change.
