I am an undergrad currently attending my final semester studying advertising and web development at the Boston University College of Communication. I enjoy road trips and shoot things for a hobby. In the coming months, this site will evolve into a book of my advertising and web development work.
I am also keen to discuss potential partnerships with like-minded student entrepreneurs in the Boston area by offering my specializations in design and creative strategy. If this sounds like you, please check out my curriculum vitae and send me an email so we can get in touch.
Here’s the Latest.
I get that question a lot, especially from my STEM major friends from back in the Bay Area.
I like to explain it this way—
You are a hip hop artist and get a diss track from your rival.
Marketing is to go on a tour across the country to boost your image.
PR is akin to calling it libel and pressing defamation charges.
Advertising is to reply with your own diss track.
This latest instagram update was the one that the ad creatives have been waiting for. We have your undivided attention, at last.
Deployment is always the best part of the developing process. Smoothing the bumps after deployment is always the worst.
If everything that I did went properly, and if you are reading this, that means I have successfully made my second major update to my web portfolio and personal site, which has been in the works for the past three months. And if you’re here from Facebook to help me test this site, you’re the best. So, GO!—have at it, and give this site your worst. And if you do run into a bug or two, click on my mailbox and give me a holler. You have my sincerest thanks.
This version of the site is significant to me because it was the culmination of years of practice. What began in the fall of 2011 as a naïve attempt to copy-pasting my way through modifying a Tumblr theme for an FBLA portfolio competition resulted in this fully-responsive, mobile-first, *insert-Silicon Valley-buzzword*, TOTALLY NOT SYNERGIZING BECAUSE WHAT IS SYNERGY, REALLY—landscaped-corner of internet real estate that I can call mine.
I can say that I’m finally out of the inf(inite)dev stage of developing me, a web developer. There’s much more to learn in the next stage, and being the most important stage of all, it’s quite fitting that it’s called alpha. More to come.
