HTML

I have built two websites for my design portfolio and thesis using html5, CSS, Sass, and JQuery. I've developed a well rounded skill set in all of these areas through studying architectural engineering and having a personal interest in web design. I recently learned custom web development using .liquid files on Shopify

Adobe Photoshop

I used Photoshop throughout architecture and architectural engineering school. This included formal Photoshop classes, development of renderings (even completely changing existing interior and exterior photos from daytime to nighttime for example), and other picture/document enhancements for presentation purposes. I have also done my own artwork using Photoshop and Illustrator for many years, and continue to use my Photoshop and Illustrator skills at work to this day.
