Industry Experience

My work involved using HTML, CSS, JS, PHP, and MySQL for Wordpress as well as editing and technical writing, visual and digital design, and layout for client projects.

Editor-in-Chief, Kudzu House Quarterly (2010-2017)

Kudzu House quarterly website As founder and editor of Kudzu House Quarterly—a nonprofit print and digital journal focused on enviornmental poetry, fiction, art, nonfiction, and interdisciplinary humanities scholarship—I collaborated with web designers, layout editors, copyeditors, book reviewers, other members of the masthead and editorial board, as well as contributing writers, to direct the journal's focus and publish a quarterly issue. I guided the journal through three website redesigns, working with both Wordpress and html-based site architectures.

Class Projects

I created the RSAU logo and worked as part of a team to design the layout and features of the site according to client needs.
