Experience

Program Assistant and Technical Projects
Atlantic Center for the Arts | September 2011 - Current
Atlantic Center for the Arts is a not-for-profit artists’ residency community and arts education facility. My responsibilities grew to include supporting many areas of the organization. Major projects include: creating and managing a new website; creating and managing a custom access database that supports development and program history; streamlining and administering the associates of the residency program from submissions and acceptance to their time in residency; managing technology on campus including multiple computers, audio recording equipment, printers, & Wi-Fi; assisting artists with technology; upgrading software, computers, and a/v equipment; and helping fellow staff make their work more efficient using advanced features of excel, access, and other software. This position started as an internship in 2011.

Freelance Web Development
Professional Clients since 2012
My main freelance project has been developing and maintaining web sites for galleries, artists, nonprofits, and other creative organizations. I have enjoyed expanding my knowledge over time and have grown from courses at the University of Florida in 2009 to creating fully featured websites in the last few years. My largest (and most recent project) is a redesign of ACA’s new website at atlanticcenterforthearts.org. It has a large set of features including clean and bold styling, a unique front page, responsive layout, integrated ecommerce, and a well-organized events page.

Other notable sites include:
