Aaron Bregg

I work for a Digital Marketing company that specializes in enhancing a company's Social Media presence on the web.  This is done by creating a website, Facebook, Twitter, Yelp profile for the client.  My job is to take PSD files from the graphics department and turn it into a fully functional website.  I do this by using XHTML, CSS and Javascript to make the designer's idea talk to the customer's information database. I also from time to time get to design mobile apps or UX forms.  I landed the job while I was attending GRCC in the spring of '09.  My favorite part of my job is creating something out of nothing, so to speak.  I pride myself on being able to code a website to almost 99.99% of what the graphics department envisioned it.
