Web, Amazon Cloud, and Adobe Creative Cloud Developer

I started my career as an art director in 1994 after attending East Carolina University. I earned my Bacherlor’s degree in Graphic Design but after several years working as a designer, I grew more and more disillusioned and, frankly, bored. Compromising on designs to please clients wasn’t fulfilling. I switched to web development in 2001 and loved it. I have not been bored a single day since. I started out doing front-end development in CSS, HTML, and JavaScript but my goal was always to get into the serverside development and move beyond web development. After many years building and implementing content management systems – CMS – I started working with other forms of coding. I currently work for a major bank working on Amazon Cloud development including IAM, Step Functions, and Lambda functions, among others. I also build plugins and extensions for design applicaitons including Adobe Creative Cloud  (InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop), as well as Figma, and Sketch.
