About this Website

I created this website to showcase my skills in web development, web design, communications, and social media. It was created using Dreamweaver and Bootstrap. I am currently looking for a full time position where I can use these skills to assist a business in spreading the word about what they do.

The second purpose of this website is to use the power of web development and social media to empower individuals and businesses with scientifically supported information; information that may help to create a world in which the natural environment is sustained and all beings may live to their full potential.
