Summary

The short version PDF resumé is here.

Career shift to software development from focusing on website design and development.

Programmer noted to have an eye for design as well as meticulous writing and coding skills while focusing on website speed, elastic coding, and responsive development beyond the grid. Photography expertise was utilized in providing images for website design and content management. A background in caregiving and customer service dating back to 1985 as well as office positions and event center management honed skills in working independently. Strong aptitudes for learning and sharing have been illustrated through extensive volunteering, participating in a local data science group dabbling in neural networks, Python and Anaconda software, and participating with and facilitating special interest groups via local in-person meetings as well as online international groups with topics ranging broadly including civil liberties, community assistance, the environment, writing, alternative health, and personal development.

In 2011 and 2012 I finished three degrees, one in E-Commerce. In 2012 I launched SeeMe Digital for professional website design and development, digital graphics, and photo restoration in Enid, Oklahoma. My specialties were well-designed, speedy, and responsive custom websites with meticulous code, creating custom website graphics, and cropping and editing photographs for business and personal use, including old and damaged photo restoration.

Since then I took on a couple of extreme intensity projects doing office work to help get the ol' student loans paid down and took a deep dive into nutrition (details forthcoming) and the world sort of stopped with the pandemic trying to kill everybody. I spent a good deal of time then helping to take care of and accompany immunocompromised loved ones, with some intermittent nutrition learning and code review on the side which has grown more intense again beginning 2022. Currently open to opportunities in software development and digital arts especially if they are involved with whole food plant based nutrition, health, and longevity.

Brief Background:


General Work:

Strong training and experience in caregiving, customer service, sales, and various office positions began in 1985 and continued over many years. Event center management included handling keys and schedules, verifying rooms were set up and ready for patrons, monitoring the facility and events, and calling security when necessary. Almost all positions required the ability to work independently as well as responsibility for the safety of lives and/or property. Spanish skills are extremely rusty but could be revived if useful.

The Web:

Designing websites and hand-coding HTML on and off since 1995, an eye for design as well as meticulous writing and coding are recognized skills. Specialties include website speed, coding elastically, and responsive development beyond the grid. A favorite project was the design and development of the custom responsive website for Woodring Wall of Honor and Veterans Park, Inc. (2013). Since then there has been further involvement with speed optimization and multiple image assets, offering better resources both for mobile as well as retina and higher definition displays.

Other:

The majority of time outside of work and formal schooling has been spent intensively learning, as well as participating with and facilitating special interest groups both online and in person. Classes and workshops were attended and given for art, science, and culture. Socially networking before that was an internet term, local and international groups have also been for study, service, events, and experience, with topics ranging broadly including civil liberties, community assistance, the environment, writing, alternative health, and personal development.
