A little about me!

To make a short story long…

I'm TaLoveous, NY freelance web developer and designer. My goal is to understand the objectives of your online presence to help you reach your goals. I'll share with you the latest tips and trends to keep your business on track , attract more visitors to your website, and build lasting relationships. Building a web presence requires the collaborative efforts of a web developer, web designer, social media expert, graphic designer, content writer, search engine optimization (SEO) strategist, and both a user interface (UI) and a user experience (UX) specialist. Allow me to handle all of these services for you and be your personal website adviser.

I started working in the field of website development in 1998 with the Business Assurance research technology team at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Web Development and an Associate of Arts degree in Web Design. I converted Word documents into HTML format using FrontPage; content was used to build a tool for the firm-wide internet. Through additional coursework, I came to understand website standards and guidelines of usability and accessibility. I also learned principles of UI and UX design as well as other programming and scripting languages such as using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, Bootstrap, and JSON. Building on that experience, I moved into a role in a Marketing Associate role at Grant Thornton LLP. I learned integrated marketing strategies and was involved with traditional and digital marketing initiatives. My role included communicating with clients via LinkedIn or emails, creating eComms for networking events and campaigns for the Not-for-Profit industry, creating targeted sales sheets for distribution at events, and maintaining a pipeline of client relationships in SalesLogix. I was involved in developing and uploading content onto the firm-wide intranet and played an active role in building and maintaining marketing's collaboration hub on SharePoint. I worked on several web-related projects to develop my skills sets, including projects to edit photos using Adobe Photoshop. In 2010, our marketing team participated in a MarCom competition and I was awarded 2010 Platinum Winner for my role in the "Getting to Know Us" Campaign, where I built an animated interactive movie with steaming sound using Adobe Flash.

In that same year, I launched Expansive Designs, an online web development and design business. With a combined blend of talents, including programming and marketing skills, I began my journey as a freelancer! I started to develop relationships with clients and took on new projects, either remotely or on-site. I custom build websites using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JQuery, and Bootstrap, and also build using CMS applications and web builder (i.e., Squarespace and WordPress). I can adapt to other CMS applications as well. I use Adobe Creative suite and commercial products as part of my toolbox, and also take advantage of a number of open-source technologies to edit photos or perform marketing processes. I enjoying using what I know to help grow my online business as well as help other small businesses make their dreams come true.

When I'm not coding I'm trying to stay fit and healthy, eating delicious food (my favorite is Thai), learning new languages (learning Thai tones now), sharing in volunteer community work, running, designing and crafting jewelry, skiing, and camping!

Thanks you for visiting my website and I look forward to working with you on your next project! Please take a look at my portfolio to view my experience working on various client projects.

Yours truly,

TaLoveous at Expansive Designs - your website adviser
