About Me

I was born in Dallas, Texas and moved to Richmond (also Texas) in 2017. This site is meant to be sort of a portfolio of all the different stuff I’ve created that I don’t know where else to put.

Oh, and it’s a chance for me to practice my SEO skills.

What I Do

SEO Specialist

My day job is working as an SEO specialist for a digital marketing firm in Houston. I like it; it’s challenging. But I do a lot of other stuff, too.

Music

Sometimes I make music. When I lived in Dallas, I was in an alternative rock band called Jared & The Jewelers. Lately I’ve been making more electronic-based stuff in Logic Pro X under the name Massive Castles.

Visual Art

Sometimes I do visual art in a variety of media. Vector art (including logo design), 3D modeling, paper cutting, linoleum block print making, and good old ink-on-paper illustration.

Writing

Sometimes I write (though infrequently). I’ve written copy for law firm websites, album reviews for my college newspaper, and blog posts about SEO.

Now, I write on my blog whenever the urge strikes.

Development/Coding

I’ve had an interest in coding and web design most of my adult life. I’ve worked most with Python, but also have previous experience with C++, Java, and assorted other languages.

I’m also a freelance WordPress developer comfortable with PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
