The events that got me here
I got my first professional job as a multimedia associate at LCBA. I also started my first freelance design company called DJR interactive.
I became the Multimedia Supervisor for LCBA. I oversaw 2 Multimedia Associates and added publication design and many other responsibilities.
I discovered the Content Management System (CMS) Joomla. After examining competitors I ultimately began development using Joomla.
I acquired 100% ownership of Pixel Point Creative and launched version 4 of the website.
Pixel Point Creative acquired EngageIT. EngageIT (formerly SurfErie) was a local ISP, hosting and technology company founded in 1999.
Chalk Line Design & Phase 3 Properties LLC were founded. These businesses buy, sell, renovate and rehab properties in the Erie area.
I sold Pixel Point Creatives’ hosting and design assets to weCreate LLC. I began freelancing for several companies. The COVID-19 pandemic opened many opportunities as businesses began shifting focus online.
In April, I became the Digital Operations Manager for SurgeTrader. SurgeTrader is a prop trading company that accelerates trader funding by helping profitable traders capitalize on their success.
Here is a select sample of my work. I’ve included pieces from all throughout my career in a variety of formats.
The images in this gallery are some I have collected from around the web. I did not create these. All images are copyrighted by their respective owners. They are shown here because I am fascinated by cinemagraphs and my website is here to not only provide information about me, but also to inspire others.
