MyPicture

Hello, I'm Jose Castillo and I'm a freelance web and graphic designer. I've been developing and creating websites since summer 2006. In 2009, I started investing time and learning about social media habits which encouraged me to pursue it as a minor degree in college.

Today, I'm involved in a variety of different online projects ranging from maintaining web servers to being the head of online marketing and social media for a large animation convention.

I am available for freelance design and if you are interested, proceed down and learn more about my abilities and skills.

On the right, you'll see some of the most common skills I work with on a daily basis. These skills, along with many others, continue to get developed everyday.

Some additional skills not listed but I do continue to improve and master are Computer Hardware Repair, iOS Development, other Adobe Creative Cloud applications, and Bootstrap.
