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.
