Matrix Trade Institute

Matrix Trade Institute

Since January of 2020, I’ve been working directly with Matrix Trade Institute’s marketing manager to enhance their website. Originally developed using Umbraco CMS by a local agency, I was able to jump right in and migrate their website from the agency’s hosting to their own in-house hosting on AWS so we have full control over the website’s source control and database. Since migrating the website, I have re-designed the home page page and the student, employer and program pages to better suit their vision at Matrix Trade Institute.


One of my most recent website launches in June 2020, Verasana is a training and learning experience platform designed for mobile. I worked with this Cleveland-based startup’s co-founder to bring the vision to life and assisted with overall brand design. The first iteration of the website features the key product features and the ability to sign up for a demo. The website was developed using Hubspot CMS.

Prudent Floors

This down-to-earth duo was a pleasure to work with for the past 2 years creating, enhancing and iterating their pixel-perfect website. As a small but mighty team they tackle big projects with expert care and clean finishing touches. After initially diving into this project and completing competitor analyses and customer surveys to learn about their industry and business, I assisted with branding and graphic design by creating their logo and brand look and feel. I built their website using WordPress CMS.

Command Plastic

I worked alongside Command Plastic’s president to update their website into a fresh, on-brand experience to upgrade their business, continue to serve their customers and find new ones. Their website showcases their product lines and allows customers to obtain quotes and make product orders. I also assisted with updating their look and feel for print materials.

Union Home Mortgage

For over four years, I have worked at Union Home Mortgage in both the marketing team and software development team. As a front-end developer I lead the team in designing and developing our consumer-facing websites and internal apps.
