About




During my studies at Chestnut Hill College, I studied Computer Information and Technology. The main focus of my major was Multimedia Design. This means that I am versed in the Adobe Creative suite (I'm best with Photoshop and Dreamweaver). I worked as the assistant website manger for chestnut hill college for over a year. During my time in that position I did a good deal of graphics work and coding using the Ektron CMS.


Following my graduation I began working freelance as a website manager and front end website developer. My current client is Double Nickels Theater Company. Very soon I will begin working with Emkay Vee: Philadelphia's #1 Import Model, The Willie's Way Foundation, and Beautiful Healing Inc.


Outside of academics and web design, I am interested in East Asian language and culture. I've been to Tokyo, Japan twice. I've been studying Japanese for a few years now and have reached intermediate proficiency. I began studying Korean recently so I have beginner understanding (meaning I can only read Hangul so far). Other hobbies include gaming, reading, drawing, and watching Korean Dramas (Don't knock it till you try it!).
