Specializing in maintenance and error/bug fixes on Modx and WordPress.

Please Note: I am not available to work through Skype or phone calls at this time. I can only work through Upwork messages or email. ------ Since I was 12, I've been pursuing graphic design and web development both independently and through schooling. I started off building websites using free website generators like MaxPages and Geocities. Since then, I've moved onto custom designs built using Photoshop and Dreamwever on content management systems, like MODx and Wordpress, with standard-compliant coding. Over the years, I’ve had experience with HTML, CSS, Javascript (jQuery), PHP, XML, and MySQL, both as they pertain to content management systems as well as custom-built solutions. I’m experienced with Apache-based hosting platforms and the software that comes with them, like cPanel and PHPMyAdmin. I’ve also worked with AWS and Microsoft hosting platforms on an as-needed basis. One thing I’ve come to love about development is troubleshooting and fixing websites, both in live and test environments. Solving the puzzles of code you’ve never seen before to bring a website back online is incredibly satisfying. In a similar vein, I enjoy performing routine maintenance on websites as it allows me to catch problems before they appear, both from a functionality and security standpoint. In 2016, I began a new venture in content creation, which exists alongside my web development work. Content creation has allowed me to explore new creative avenues like video recording and live streaming using software like Premiere Pro and OBS on platforms like YouTube and Twitch. I’ve also had the opportunity to further my graphic design and web development experience through creating and maintaining a website where I write guides and other articles. My work has required me to be a constant presence on social media. This not only means frequently communicating with people but also making sure the content I’m creating can be displayed or consumed across all social media platforms. I must also perform search engine optimization to ensure my content appears in search results when relevant.

"Preston has initiative and drive. In the work of learning and using a new CMS he excelled through attention to detail and the ability to grasp rather complicated concepts. We will work with him again."
