Hello and welcome to my design/portfolio blog. I am always updating the site with more of my work, so keep checking back, as the site changes all the time!
As you will see, my work over the years includes copyediting, design, photo editing, web design, multimedia, coding, development, UX and even app design. I believe my experience, knowledge, and interest give me a unique perspective on visual communication and I can usually adapt and handle whatever job you need quickly and easily.
I did some WordPress site work and email coding for this small Upper Arlington Agency.
JUST LAUNCHED!! This site is for a small rental company in Lancaster, OH. I had to code conditional forms and add a payment feature, as well as organize their info and sliders (galleries).
I Taught a WordPress class Spring Semester 2017 for the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University in Athens, OH. The class basically took all the skills they had learned previously and merged them into a class using WordPress. Most had never used WordPress or Hosting Accounts and domains before, so it was a little bit of everything.
I managed and coordinated the design, editing, coding and execution of automated email messages for brand partners' cardmembers, adhering to CAN-SPAM requirements and email best practices.
I did this '10 WordPress Design Hacks for Graphic Designers' presentation for WordCamp Cincinnati 2016. I always try to do something less techie and more design related at these sessions because most of the other sessions are so technical.
I did a presentation on Widgets for WordCamp Columbus 2016. What is a Widget, how do they work, how to use them and then I offered some good examples of widgets.
I designed, set up and managed the company's bi-weekly HTML email marketing campaign (sometimes more than bi-weekly). I designed e-mails in PhotoShop and after final approval, I sliced them up to transfer and code for ExactTarget Email Marketing tool for scheduling and management.
A friend of mine was doing an internship at msnbc.com and she recommended me when they needed a good photo editor to come and help them out during the Beijing Olympics. I had just finished the coursework for my Master's Degree at Ohio University and was at a point where I was starting to look for a job and it seemed like a good opportunity. So I drove out to Seattle to do the job for five weeks. I worked for the Media Team as a Multimedia Producer.
