Hi! I'm a front end web developer, user interface developer, and plenty of other related titles. I code and design with a focus on making life easier for users. I'm also a silversmith, costuming enthusiast, and cat lady. Take a look at some work samples below.

UT Austin Coding Bootcamp (January-July 2017)

PartySherpa

This group project was for an event scheduling and management app. We used the Facebook login, ability to create and save events, invite people via facebook or sms, and give guests the ability to RSVP and make additional arrangements such as menu options. It's like Facebook events but also open to people who don't use Facebook, and collects more data than a simple attendants Yes/No.
Like Moodmash, it's a bit rough around the edges as it was a 2 week class project.

Moodmash

A proof of concept webapp written with mobile in mind. We figured out how to grab data from Spotify and Bandsintown APIs and make them work together to introduce the user to new music and suggest live shows.
Spotify Login required.

  1. Enter your city
  2. Tap what you're feeling
  3. The app searches spotify for a relevant public playlist and plays it for you
  4. The app also searches Bandsintown for every artist on the current playlist, and displays their upcoming shows in your city
  5. Softly animated background colors echo your mood (see prototypes on my codepen)

This was a group project, and the alt-style branch is my personal revision I continued working on after the Bootcamp program.

Mobile

AT&T Troubleshoot & Resolve

A self-guided tech support experience designed to reduce the load on customer support call centers. This responsive website has many detailed walkthroughs, so I was doing dev, creating vector drawings for device diagrams, and creating icons.

Movistar

App for Android and iOS for Telefonica customers. Users can view details about their mobile device, plan and data usage. I did a total revamp from the company's out of the box product to the tailored, branded version for the client.

Skills:

Websites

The Persona Music

This is a Wordpress site owned and operated by a local Austin musician/performer. He needed style updates for the site so it would match his new album art and further his brand. This uses the Oshine theme from Brand Exponents, and required some plugin updating/reconfiguring/troubleshooting to get it up to date with their new tatsu editor (which is fantastic). Most of my work on this project was behind the scenes, to clean up the install and plugin situation to make future updates easier for the owner to do himself.

re.claim

A Tumblr site that needed social media integration. I made the twitter and facebook "follow" buttons to precisely match the theme's existing "Get in Touch" button and added the code which enables viewers to share the site's individual products through those two platforms.

Launch This site is no longer live.

Skills:
  • CSS
  • Photoshop
  • HTML
  • Pixel-Perfect UI

The Anti-Tourist

This is a Wordpress site owned and operated by Elizabeth Seward. When she and her team needed technical assistance, I served as a consultant to implement and customize various plug-ins and modified aspects of their chosen theme to accomodate their vision. Their theme was conflicting with two of their plug-ins (the lightbox and menu bar), so I dove into their PHP and CSS files and corrected the issues.

Flash

Shoot the iPhone

Remember Flash? Here is one of those banner ad games. Mine is a slightly classier version than most of the advertisement games out there, but still very attention-grabbing. If this was active on a site, the "Congratulations" screen would redirect to the raffle site after a few seconds.

Imaging

Retouch: Clothing Color

Clothing color change

Clothing color change. The rust colored dress is the original. Rust to blue was easy because they are about the same brightness. Rust to yellow and required some extra massaging of shadows and highlights.

Retouch: White Dress

Mouse over the images to see the original versions. For this one, I focused on reshaping her waist and hips. I shrunk her waist and evened out the curves of her hips for a more uniform hourglass shape while keeping her pelvis intact for an anatomically correct look. Her legs had some veins and uneven tones, so I smoothed those out and added a dark minky tone with modified highlights to make it look like she is wearing tights. I eliminated stray hairs from around her face and dust and damage from her shoes and the floor. I enhanced the highlights in her eyes and the dress's embellishment, cleaned up her makeup, added a hint of shadow under her cheekbones, and softened some harsh lighting on her face. Her nose needed some reshaping for symmetry. I intensified her hair color and added some subtle highlights and lowlights. Distracting light reflections in the background were toned down.
