About Me!

I have a techical background which eventally led me into computer programming using languages such as C and C++, and then, web development. I realized that I needed to improve my graphic design skills, so after completing the web publishing classes at Cabrillo College, I began taking graphic design classes using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and other Adobe applications. I discovered that I really love to design! I really encourage everyone to take an Illustrator, Photoshop, or beginning digital media class at a local two-year college. I discovered something that I really love which I never thought I would be that interested in just by being exposed to it. (I also discovered the same thing when I took my first AutoCad class).

I hope to replace some of my older websites and work with newer material very soon. My first project will be putting some finishing touches on this website including finishing any responsiveness issues, then a dropdown menu and header is next. After that, I want to use the content of this website and make a Bootstrap version. I may use different colors and fonts. Then, I will have another entry on my web page! One thing I learned from doing this website is MOBILE FIRST!

When I am not working or sitting in front of a computer, I love to garden, hike, and watch classic movies! I try to be the change I hope to see in the world.
