I have a Bachelor's degree in Mass Media Production. I specialized in video editing. In 2017 I decided to get into Software development. Video editing prepared me for software development in a way that no other degree would. It helped develop my attention to detail along with the patience to stare at a problem until you figure it out. Video editing and software development require you to have the ability to plan your project out instead of just jumping right in.

Cleveland GiveCamp is a weekend in July where professional software developers, designers, project managers, and many other technical positions come together and create websites or apps for non-profits in the greater North Eastern Ohio.
In 2019 I helped create a website using Wordpress for an organization called Fairmount Center for the Arts. Before GiveCamp Fairmount didn't have a website that could be displayed on mobile devices and the site was missing integration of an easy way to make donations. We created a new website for them. I figured out how to customize the footer with custom CSS to add a donate button to the footer of their website..
One of the nonprofits I helped in 2018 was Engage Cleveland. Engage Cleveland is a nonprofit whose mission is to reach and keep young professionals in the Cleveland area. The project migrated from Wordpress to Squarespace. I quickly learned the ins and outs of Squarespace and started teaching my group how to use it.
Bounce Innovation Hub is the other non-profit I was able to work with. Bounce is a nonprofit that supports startups. I helped redesign their website along with pointing them in the direction of using CSS to make pictures responsive.
