About me

Where I'm from

Being native to Charleston SC, I enjoy the good things in life. I am an avid surfer, horticulturist, and an artist. Happy to experience any form of outdoor activity with good friends or family, and my three legged dog, Cooper. If you are an outgoing and positive person, you are a friend of mine!

Education

Currently attending the College of Charleston, I am pursuing a major in Computer Information Systems with a Data Science minor. I am on course to graduate in the Spring of 2017. However it doesnt end there, I try to learn something new every day.

Work

I am currently freelancing as a website developer, and my portfolio is always growing. If you believe your company could use a website, I am your guy! I also work for CRU catering as a server on the side.

Interests

Surfing

I was blessed to have been raised on the Isle of Palms, SC. At a young age I became interested in surfing. I like short boarding but having dealt with Charleston's average conditions for some time, I have come to appreciate long boarding equally. I even made a surf website for the charleston community. It's called charlestonsurf.com and it compares Folly conditions with IOP conditions and even has a live stream of the waves at each location. check it out for yourself at Charlestonsurf.com!

Horticulture

When I was attending Wando high school, I took my first horticulture class and quickly fell in love with growing plants, particularly the edible sort. One of my first websites I built in html/css was Garraux-it.com. It shows visitors the positive effects of gardening on health and happiness, as well as teaches people how to "garraux" tomatoes, avocados, and kiwano (African Horned Melon) step by step from seed.

Art

I have always had a bit of a creative side. Just sit next to me in any class and see the canvas I call notes. At the College of charleston I have studied studio arts such as drawing, painting, and printmaking. However I have also enjoyed dabbling in the digital arts such as Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and InDesign. You can find one of my digital art portolios at Garraux Designs as well as some of my other (physical) artwork here.
