I am a web designer and developer specializing in web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization.
Web design was not first choice seeing that I minored in Computer Science at Daystar University and only started designing websites on a full time basis six years ago. At the time, website design or development jobs were not plenty especially when not employed, so I dabbled in a few online jobs including content writing and transcription.
With time, more website jobs started coming through mostly because of referrals. Each job was more challenging than the last with clients requesting more features and unique designs which I was only to happy to oblige. I had to however pick up a few courses in coding and graphic design along the way to soup up my skill set allowing me to deliver to the expectations of my clients.
