Skills

Along the path of life, if we apply ourselves, we can gain any number of skills. Here is what I've learned.

Web Design

From learning HTML in 1996 and CSS in the 2000's to teaching myself Javascript and PHP in the 2010's, my path of website coding has been 100% self taught. I will always be interested in design trends and their application to the user experience. This is my favorite field of study and I hope I never stop applying myself in this direction.

Digital Strategies

Using analytics, adwords, and applying my knowledge of SEO to my design principles has helped me leverage the greatest ROI for my ecommerce clients. Taking DakotaStones from a zero web presence to selling over $150k annually online would have to be my proudest digital accomplishment.

Communications

Working with a diverse array of clients with differing needs can be a challenge. Communicating digital principles and strategies to clients with little to no knowledge of these fields is part of what makes my upbringing in the 1980's so valuable to both an older and younger clientele.
