B.S. in Marketing to Front-end Dev

Originally, I received my Webmaster Certification from Troy University back when you only needed a certification, and we used tables to layout our websites. So now that you know that I am approximately 100 years old, understand that from there I built 100s of sites (that will never see the light of day), made good money but still needed something more. At that point, I decided to complete my degree in Marketing at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. With support and a dream, I started a business offering marketing solutions for start-ups thus building even more websites (but by this time, the sites were significantly better). As I transitioned from developer to business partner to owner and consultant, I knew I that needed to keep up with web trends and expand my knowledge because so much was happening so fast. With a profound desire to grow, I started the #100DaysOfCode challenges (maybe 2 or 3 times) and with that I’ve settled into my niche and I must say “I’m finding front-end development exciting and rewarding again.”

Here are a few of my more fun, personal projects.

Let’s Eat

Who likes to argue about what’s for dinner? No One! So I’ve created a simple web app to help you and your family spend more time eating and less time arguing.

100 Days of Code

We’ve all seen the 100 Days of “Something” floating around the internet so I decided a 100 Days of Code blog created using Gatsby.js and Markup would be appropriate.

Big II

If you remember the movie Big with Tom Hanks, then you will get a (wait for it) KICK out of this fun little web app that still has a small bug in it; however, its still worth showing while I work it out.

To Do or Not To Do

Here is one of my many ToDo Apps but this time in React. It features React Hooks and localStorage for keeping your todo’s stored on your device.
