My passion for programming and creating web sites started when I was a teenager growing up in Fairmont Minnesota. I took my very first programming class when I was in high school and began making basic HTML websites in my free time. I enjoyed it so much I went on to earn a B.A. degree in both Computer Science and Management Information Systems from Augustana Univeristy. Over the years, I have found that I really enjoy planning and building out custom websites that are accessible, SEO and device friendly. I have experiences with both open source content management systems like Drupal and WordPress as well as with propitiatory solutions like an administrator of SharePoint Online and other cloud-based solutions. I have managed new website build-outs and reorganizations of existing websites and intranets. I have lead intranet governance teams with the goal of creating organizational wide guiding principals and best practices to help with employee engagement of an intranet solution. I have just a sampling of some of the projects I've worked on below. Get in touch with me for any questions! I'm available for freelance work for non-profits, personal portfolios and any other digital needs.
