PROFESSIONAL

DevDigital

Most of my work for DevDigital has been writing short blog posts with specific keywords for Search Engine Optimization (SEO). These posts are published on the websites of DevDigital clients to show Google that the site is active and relevant, thus pushing the site higher in organic search results. In addition to my blog work, I have also done search engine optimization writing for a few static web pages on DevDigital client sites.

Websites

The Knowledge Nook, my mom’s website, which I built and currently maintain. Hub for all of mom’s business ventures. Eventually would like to spin each venture into its own website, so we can better market towards specific demographics

Winchester Municipal Airport, local airport. Redesigned website and updated content. Simplified design, reduced number of pages, made site mobile friendly. Per administrator’s request, the site features a widget that updates on aviation prices and has a spam feature on the contact box. Since the redesign, the website has received positive feedback from viewers and receives regular contact information.

Lay-N-Low Custom Baggers, a local motorcycle customization shop. The client wanted to be able to sell online. Currently in development.

San Antonio Cyclery, bike shop located near Saint Leo which has since moved and changed its name to Fat Rick’s Bicycle Emporium. My work led to a measurable increase in site traffic and since the move most of my content has been retained.

2019 Franklin County Fair, the fair was almost cancelled, but the community came together to make it happen. I volunteered for the website.

CREATIVE

I am working on two different novels. One is a spy-crime thriller, the other is a sci-fi fantasy which features a witch, a college drop-out, and a princess who breathes fire. Both books are reworks and combinations of ideas and stories I have been toying with for a long time. I’ll finish them one day.

In the meantime, I would like to expand my lifeguard stories into a full collection and help my grandfather write an autobiography which will include the well witcher story. I also intend to submit short stories to lit magazines and contests going forward.
