About Me...


Allow me to introduce myself... My Name is Keith McCaslin. I am currently enrolled in University of New Mexico Continuing Education, working towards completing a certification in Graphic Design and Web Development. I am on track to complete the classes required for these certifications by the Spring of 2019. I am also actively pursuing training through FreeCodeCamp.org and hope to complete this soon. As time goes on, I will update the list of completed classes as shown below, and will also continue to update my portfolio in the areas of Graphic Design, Website Design, Sandblasting & Signage, and of course, completed CodeCamp projects. I have a passion to learn and would be interested in working at everything from an internship to entry level employment in either (or both) of these fields. Please consider this website as an example of my coding experience, and check back frequently as I have plans to update this online portfolio with new features learned and recent examples of work done in the areas mentioned.
