...is my name, I'm a junior front-end developer looking for opportunities.
As a self taught developer I am highly motivated and have a strong desire to keep learning and improving.
I have done freelance work as both a UX designer and a developer working with WordPress and Rails.
Timeline Nov 2018 - Jun 2019
Served as Co-founder and CTO building a web-app to help Brazilian Students choose their professors and discuss their university experience. I learned Rails through the process of building this application.
I developed the minimum viable product that allowed users to add their professors, post reviews and aggregate ratings. Any review could be flagged for inappropriate content. For administration I built a portal for moderators to go in and review and remove flagged content.
Timeline Feb 2016 - Oct 2017
Created three themes for WordPress from the ground up: RSS: Really Simple Style, an elegant and simple theme that puts your written content first and eliminates distractions; and two personal themes Travisfantina-2017 , TravisFantina-2018 for previous incarnations of this website.
Timeline: Sep 2017 - Present
Worked closely with the founder designing a minimum viable product based on their initial ideas and specifications. The application is designed to help Court Reporters manage their transcripts, set deadlines, budget their time and workload. I was the lead designer on the product and took the design from the initial stages all the way to the handoff with the developer. Throughout development I continued to consult on design issues.
After the initial launch I was asked to return to add additional features informed by user feedback. This gave me a unique opportunity to reaches my original designs and make changes almost a year later.
Timeline: April - July 2017 & February - March 2018
A very simple webpresence for Star Rider Productions, the creators of Captain Canuck. It makes heavy use of CSS Grid displaying a portfolio of dozens of images. The images are managed by Contentful the headless CMS and pulled through the Contentful API.
My contributions can be found on: GitHub.
CodePen is an amazing resource for front end development I tend to go there and start a new pen whenever I have questions or want to experiment with a potential front end feature. Consequently, my CodePen has a lot of silly junk that I created for one small idea I was working on, but you can also find some of my past work as well as some of my freeCodeCamp projects.
I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2017 with a degree in Business Management from the Marriott School. While at school I supplemented my business studies with classes in the MEAN stack, HTML, and CSS.
At school I served as the Entrepreneurship Club's VP of marketing using Illustrator and InDesign to create promotional materials and flyers for club events.
