A little about me and what I do…

Hello, my name is John. I am a web Developer and Graphic Artist from the Green Bay area. I have an AA in Design & Graphic Technology and an AA in Web Development from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College.

I became involved in art at an early age. I was the kid who always had box of crayons and was constantly drawing and coloring. I also had a Polaroid camera that I was always running around with (even when it didn't have film).

In my teenage years I discovered the electric guitar which opened a whole new world of art and expression for me. I played in a lot of bands, some good, some terrible, and learned how to write music. Writing music is still one of my greatest passions and a hobby that keeps me creative when I am not designing or writing code.

In January of 2010 I began attendance at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College in pursuit of an Associate of Arts in Design and Graphic Technology. While pursuing this degree I learned about essential concepts and thereoies of design; grids, typography, form vs. function, archetypes etc.

One of the required classes for the Design & Graphic Technology degree was Website Coding. This was my first exposure to the world of HTML and CSS. Needless to say I fell in love with creating websites and writing code. It overcame my passion for printed design and became my primary focus for my career direction.

When I'm not designing or writing code for the web…

… I spend time with my girlfriend Alisha and our two dogs. We enjoy spending our time walking the dogs, fishing, visiting with our family and friends and going to movies and concerts.
