I have been a Web Developer Intern for over 14 months at WP Engine working on multiple sites and internal tools for them. My tasks in the beginning were initially to only help with bug fixing with HTML/CSS. But my position soon grew to resemble that of a contractors. I was bumped from 20hrs a week to 30hrs a week and began helping my team to implement marketing campaigns, fixing bugs, genesis theming, WordPress development, applying A/B testing, assisting in adding features to internal tools, and more.

I helped convert the Graduate College’s site from an old template in the Gato CMS to a newer version. This was done by removing all of the outdated html/css code that was embedded throughout over a 1000 pages of content. Once the old html/css was removed I helped redesign and configure the new layouts for the site which helped bring their site into a more modern aesthetic. I also coded and implemented a new filtering and search system for their programs page while also scrubbing through their data and assets for current information that would cut down on the bloat of their site and assets.
I created this project using data from the Twitter API. I processed the and filtered the data so that I could tell a story from tweets that were sent to the handles @NASA and @SpaceX. Each stories data was compiled a week apart. That way I could get a definitive answer for what their followers were tweeting without any crossover data affecting my results.
I created this project using data from the Austin data portal and processed the data so that I could get a better understanding of the environmental impact that Austin’s growth is having on the endangered endemic salamander population. The three that I covered were the Austin, San Marcos, and Dallas blind salamanders.
I coded this mock-up blog site for the MAIP internship program. I handled all of the coding, writing, photography, and graphic-design for the site.
