I joined this social media website called about.me not too long ago. I still don’t really “get it” (it turns out that social media that isn’t Twitter eludes me completely — it might be my tendency toward quietness, and maybe I should develop a Game Plan with it), but there must be something to it: […]Read More
I’m back-a-thon from the hackathon at the very first Hack for the Community! Not only was this the first event of its kind in this area — a volunteer-driven hack event to meet community needs in middle Tennessee — but it is the first hackathon I’ve gone to (and not the last!). Apparently there was a dearth […]Read More
I’ll be participating as a designer in Hack for the Community at Emma next month, March 7th and 8th! I’m excited, as I’ve never done anything like this before. I’ll post an update about the results of our hack-a-thon afterward!Read More
Have you ever wanted to set the source of a clicked link — like an image — as the background of a webpage? Last week, I made a simple CodePen demoing that exact thing. You can also view it in action on the front page of this website: if you click directly on any of […]Read More
For some reason, I only JUST found out about this event — a week-long, 24-hour livestream of video game speedruns done to raise funds for cancer research through the Prevent Cancer Foundation. A great thing for a great cause: as of this posting, they’ve raised $363,000 of their $500,000 goal! I’ve been watching on-and-off since Tuesday and I’ve gotta say, as someone who knows one too many people touched by cancer, and as a gamer, that I’m very happy this event exists to help people.
EDIT: They ultimately raised over one million dollars! $1,023,218.02 as of 1/14 10 AM CST. That’s amazing.
My time working with HCA Healthcare Information Technology & Services has had me edit hundreds of healthcare websites in the span of two years. Most of it has been migrating text and image content, either from a previously-existing website or from provided Word documents, PDFs, and attachments for new sites in dotCMS. Many more have […]Read More
Several years back, I quickly developed ten wireframe web layouts for use where I worked, the basis of corporate and other soon-to-be. The company’s sudden closure meant that these would never be utilized by them, but then I put them to use: they have served as the basis for WordPress themes I am developing, including […]Read More
Last night I whipped up a quick page displaying a few style comp layouts I did some years back. Old and rapidly-created though they may be, I still have a fondness in my heart for them; they were created with creative liberty, and if there’s anything I enjoy, it’s designing (or re-designing) creative, style-oriented websites.
