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.
