As a Web Developer, I have been helping to turn out some pretty sweet websites at Beyond The Brand since October 2018. My goal is to make your website the best it can be, whether it’s by designing sleek website elements, getting more traffic to your site, or ensuring it remains fast, efficient, and secure. I truly enjoy watching our websites come to life, from the mock-up right up until the finished product. Want to know a little bit more about my background? Keep reading below.
I started my adventures in web design when I was just an awkward looking kid with a bowl cut. I got my first computer when I was 8 years old in 1999 and quickly took a liking to creating my own websites. I tried just about every free website builder available and began learning HTML in my spare time. Once it came time to go to college, I couldn’t think of anything I wanted to do more. In 2017, I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Information Systems with an emphasis on Web Design & Development. Throughout my time at UNH, I learned a lot inside and outside of the classroom. I was fortunate to have two great Web Design internships for some local nonprofit organizations, where I was able to apply my technical skills to some real world situations.
Out of college, I began working for a small local web design company, which acted as a great stepping stone into my current role as Web Developer at Beyond The Brand. I mostly specialize in WordPress, but also have experience using other Content Management Systems like Joomla and Drupal. I really enjoy watching our websites grow and come to life, from mock-up designs all the way up to the finished product.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing video games. (Who doesn’t?) I mostly enjoy playing RPGs and Strategy games. Aside from that, I have played guitar since I was 12, and began singing when I was in high school. I used to be in a band with one of my good friends and the woman who I am now getting married to, and we still like to hang out and play music when we can. I am mostly into modern indie rock music nowadays, but still have a love for the classics. I also enjoy reading fantasy books when I can find the time. When I’m not doing one of those things, you will probably find me goofing around with my friends and family!
