Job searching isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to be quite so hard. WorkHQ is a tool designed to assist job-seekers in organizing their job search. WorkHQ is built and deployed using the MERN (Mongo, Express, React, Node) stack. Information is displayed to the user via React. Express and Node handle server-side functionality. User and job data are stored using MongoDB with Mongoose as the ORM. Authentication flow is handled with Firebase Authentication. Users are able to securely log in with Google or anonymously to test features. Project is deployed via Heroku with MLabs (operates with MongoDB Atlas) as the cloud DB provider. My role in this project was to design and develop UX/UI and handle MongoDB integration.

Busy Bot helps users find events based on location, time, or event type and only displays events from the Ticketmaster API that the user can reach in time based on travel times estimated by the Mapquest Route Matrix API.

Web Design; Brand Development:
Foundation for Family & Community Healing

January 2019 – present

I began at the Foundation as a volunteer, focusing my attentions on developing a brand from first drafts of a logo all the way to launching their site, which was built primarily using WordPress. My responsibilities have also included oversight of interns’ publication of social media posts and other promotional materials.

ux/ui design; Web design:
VirtualKEY

July 2018 – Sept 2018

I began my time at VirtualKEY as UX/UI Designer working primarily on the web and mobile app designs, but quickly took on additional graphic design responsibilities. I used Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign to create printed and digital ads including trade show materials such as banners, fliers, brochure spreads and social media content. After producing several design iterations for the reboot of the VirtualKEY website, I built an entirely new site using a Bootstrap template as a base.

Capstone:
New Media Institute

Aug 2017- Feb 2018

For our senior capstone project, my team was tasked with expanding the ODYSSEY Media Group’s online presence into a mobile app in order to grow their readership and better serve their readers. For this goal, I designed and co-developed an iOS app using Swift and Objective C within the XCode environment, worked closely with the WP REST API and used Javascript to pull JSON data remotely from the client’s existing website. My experience with Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Premiere Pro was essential both to the design of the app and in the creation of both digital and printed promotional materials, which included a small informational booklet which folded out to a full-sized poster.

This piece was commissioned by Creature Comforts as a beginning of a series of screen printed coloring pages to spearhead their Get Artistic campaign.
