Simple Photo Gallery with ES6 and Flexbox

Fairly simple site built as an excuse to play with a few of the things I am learning in ES6 to see how to apply them. Also used flexbox just because. Uses the unsplash API to pull in the images.

Girl Friend Factor

Freelance project for a non-profit. They had an older site that wasn't maintainable anymore. It also was not mobile friendly, and looked out-dated. I suggested a move to WordPress as an easy system for them to be able to manage their own content and then set about designing and building the site. Following launch of this project, I spent time training board members on how to actually use the new site. I continue to perform maintenance and other updates.

Simple Game

See the PenSimple Gameby@michellejl

A simple game created with JavaScript on an HTML5 canvas element. This project required me to really spend some time wrapping my head around object-oriented-programming. I definitely feel I gained a much better understanding of the concept through building this project.

Three Wooden Pigeons - Photography Portfolio
