Hello! I'm Michaela and this is my portfolio website. It in itself is awesome. I have meandered my way through college and out into the world. After a slow start, I am beginning to go in a direction I would like to be going in. Here you will get to learn a bit more about who I am, what I do, and how I can help you.
Show-off blurb: This site was designed, built, and styled by me. I used a couple of plugins here and there, but it was built from the ground up. As with every website I design and build, I make sure that the site works on any size computer or device screen. Because yeah, I'm that good.
The websites I design are geared towards client's needs combined with user experience. I aim to create clean, easy to view, easy to navigate, websites that promote the business and get their message across. I don't do add spam. Sorry, not sorry! Contact me to get started.
I have experience building out one page websites such as the one you are currently viewing and I have experience building out large websites with over a dozen pages. It all boils down to what the client needs. Curious? Email me.
I put every website I build through a rigorous list of tests to make sure it appears and functions correctly. Along with being user friendly and easy to understand. If you want someone to review your website and break down areas that need improvement, send me a message.
I also offer beginner website design and development tutoring through Wyzant.com. I help with everything from class assignments to personal projects to simply getting ahead and learning a new skill. Check out my awesomeness here.
I love playing computer and board games. From Ultima Online and Sorry! to Guild Wars 2 and Settlers of Catan. I've also tried my hand at building my own board game.
An avid reader growing up, my focus has now shifted to creative writing. Being a night writer with a large book series in the works means I'm busy from sun-up to well after sunset.
I love animals of all shapes and sizes. With two feline floofers of my own and a family doggo to visit, I am not lacking in paws, claws, or animal hair coats for all my clothes.
Growing up surrounded by creative people, I thrive with creative endeavors. I've done all sorts of projects like knitting, painting, wood building, ring making, and glass etching.
My favorite fitness hobbies are Horseback Riding, Ice Skating, and Zumba.
In college I found out that I made a great leader. I got involved and became Co-President of RIT's Leadership Institute and Community Service Center Student Advisory Board.
I spent most of my college experience involved with and supporting Women in Computing at RIT. In my last two years there, I helped it start to become what it is today. A lively, popular, campus organization that helps to create equality in computing programs at RIT and beyon.
