Jonathan Moore

Creative, Builder, Designer

About

My name is Jonathan Moore and I like to design and build things. Artwork, Websites, Apps, Furniture, Gardens, Sets, Cars & Trucks, etc. Some things I build can even turn out terrible. But I keep going and thankfully I tend to get it right. Creating and building is like a disease and I can't turn it off. I love working with new teams, in new environments and in new creative landscapes.

I've an unusual background. My first career began at the age of 16 as a professional ballroom dance teacher. By the time I was 21, I'd opened up my first school and I was the youngest franchisee ever for Fred Astaire Dance Studios. A few years later, I hopped upon the national housing bandwagon and jumped into land development. In the market bubble crash of ’06-'07, I lost everything. Good thing too, I’d been secretly harboring ambitions to join the military for a few years up to that point.

So, I joined the US Army as a 14J (I maintained the operating system for the Patriot Missile System.) I really loved and enjoyed that. Before you go thinking I was a hot shot in the US Army, I had a security clearance and since we were working in code and computers for the missile intelligence operations, we were essentially the ‘nerds’ of the Army.

While still in the Army and after I got out, I began finishing up my degree in Interactive Media and Web Design at The Art Institute of Austin, TX. During this time I began to support myself freelancing in web design and interactive media. I am proud to have worked on many projects over my career, with some fantastic clients

I've managed multiple projects and teams and I'm excellent at delivering within deadlines. Thank you for taking the time to read my cover letter and for your consideration.

What I Can Do

Web Design

Creating Imaginative and Functional websites that are responsive and balanced. Taking into consideration UI and UX design elements in all of my interactive media projects.

Interactive Media

Content is EVERYTHING. No longer is just having a web presence good enough. A website must be engaging and encourage visitors to explore through the content and media they engage in. Having fantastic content is just a another part of this process.

Photography

I love taking pictures. In many cases it can make or break a website. Knowing just how to capture and format images, that are best showcased on your website, is my one of specialties.

Video Production

Let's face it, the future of the Internet is on TV. Are you going to be ready?

Graphic Design, After Effects & Audio

Knowing how to create mock-ups and functionality are core skills of any content developer. How everything fits together as a chorus of offerings is an entirely different process.

Product Development

I Love inventing new things. Much of my work lately has been Agricultural (which is where the tech future is headed) but I also like Robots and AI too!
