Hello! My name is Addy. I'm an internet addict and a nerd. I graduated from Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in Web Design and Interactive Media and a 3.98 GPA. I have experience in web design, graphic design, general marketing and email marketing from my various adventures with different companies. You can view a quick snapshot of my resume here.
Beautiful design is an artform. I have a fondness for simple designs and colors that come together to create something amazing and easy to use.
For me, coding is thrilling. It's what gives design life. I love being able to take code and find out how it works and what else I can do with it.
Photography, video editing and creative writing are additional hobbies I do in my spare time between coding and graphics projects.

As a Graphic/Web Designer at Driving Force Auto, I would create websites for car dealerships as well as online marketing materials, web banners and other website media as needed. This included keeping track of branding standards for major OEMs in conjunction with the dealership's business identity.
