Web Developer and Freelance Writer

About Me


Hello, welcome to my portfolio page. My dev work is mostly marketing support and coding, *not design.* I am also a cybersecurity analyst (CySA+) and Linux+ certified professional.

I'm currently writing cybersecurity content (blogs / eBooks). Other pieces available by request.

I previously worked 8 years as a web designer for a busy marketing department and 3 years as an interface developer for the San Diego Union-Tribune. I was very dedicated to both my jobs, so most of my older contract design samples are not live anymore. But you can still see below thumbnails and descriptions of my part in developing those sites.

I value candor in the pursuit of excellence. I conquer problems.

Corporate Site

My position at XIFIN involved marketing processes (Salesforce, Marketo, Google Analytics), support, SEO, and Drupal administration and training. I saw the site through three versions. We eventually used the pre-built theme below for the current site at www.xifin.com. It remains unchanged since I left. Below that are some ideas I put forward for the content page layouts. I also built a customer portal and product microsites.
