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.

• Experienced with complex technical problem-solving

Volunteer Experience

Technical Volunteer


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..

Technical Volunteer


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.
