About Gravics

I'm a web developer, designer living in Austin, Texas. Love WordPress. Always learning ways to make it unique and beautiful.

photoshop

Photoshop

Photoshop – photo retouching and web design layout. It’s fun taking the design and converting it to CSS3 where it can apply.

flash

Flash

Flash – no regrets about choosing actionscript 3 as my first scripting language. The experience paved the way for javascript because of the similarities.

fireworks

Fireworks

Fireworks – still a part of my tool box, mostly for vector artwork. Always willing to explore different design tools for inspiration.

dreamweaver

Dreamweaver

Dreamweaver – my first development tool and used for text editing primarily. Currently using Notepad++ and on occasion, Sublime Text 2.

illustrator

Illustrator

Illustrator – the vector capabilities of Photoshop are very good but when vector artwork is necessary, Illustrator is the option.

after-effects

After Effects

After Effects – this program is powerful and fun. Have done video effects and color correction for educational videos.

experience

Experience

One of the things that I discovered about Wordpress was the limitless creative possibilities the platform offers. As an artist, I can visualize a result that I want and then create it.
