Current Projects and Undertakings

I designed this site as a working resume and project repository for potential clients and employers.  It is built using the Adobe Creative Cloud suite including, Dreamweaver, Muse, Illustrator, and Photoshop.  It is underpinned using a CSS bootstrap template and coded in HTML 5.  The site uses a responsive design methodology.  The vector art is done in Illustrator and I've uploaded a few examples of infographics that I have been working on.

 

In addition to web and graphic design, I have been working on a Java based IT service ticket system similar to the open source SpiceWorks platform.  Finally, I am learning Python in 2016 to supplement my Java programming.

On the hardware side, I have this site hosted on a Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 server instance, specifically Windows Server 2012, using their free tier service, which if you haven't explored is pretty neat.  The server instance was fully bootstrapped for Windows, however I would like to start a Linux instance from scratch in 2016.  I am currently exploring the benefits of a fully virtualized server for a small business client.


Speaking of Linux, I plan on attending Red Hat Certification in 2016 along with completing my Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).  I am currently enrolled in the Masters of Information Technology/Information Security at Southern New Hampshire University.
