About Hillary Swantek

I graduated from Michigan State University (go Spartans!) in May of 2011 with a BA in Media Arts & Technology, with a concentration in Games, Web & Interactive Media. I am currently working as a freelance web designer, specializing in the creation and maintenance of small business websites. I believe in designing websites that are creative and aesthetically appealing, yet are functional and easy to use.

Outside of web design, my interests include animals, traveling, photography, and music. I have been involved in the sport of horseback riding for over fourteen years, in which I began as a student and have since worked my way up to being an instructor. In the summer of 2010, I was lucky enough to participate in the Dolphin Research Center's DolphinLab Career Series: Marine Mammal Care & Training.

I design websites using HTML, CSS, and Dreamweaver. I also have basic knowledge of JavaScript, ActionScript, and Ruby on Rails. I have working knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office Suite. I have experience working with WordPress and am familiar with Drupal.
