Upright Communications is excited to welcome Kory Young, our newest Web Developer to our team. Kory is already making significant contributions, putting his talents and abilities to work for our clients. As an introduction to our newest team member, we asked Kory to share a little bit about himself:
What is your educational background?
I’m a Web Designer and Developer living in Cincinnati with a degree in Applied Media Communications from UCBA.
What work experience have you had?
Before joining Upright, I worked in the IT department for Monti Inc. and Atos. However, I wanted to find a career where I could use my creativity more, so I decided to go back to school and get my degree in Applied Media Communications.
What are your career goals and aspirations?
My main goals are to improve my design and development skills, as well as learn new skills such as UI/UX design. Eventually, I would like to be able to work as a freelancer as someone who can design and develop websites for brands and/or companies. Working at Upright will help with all of these as I get a chance to design and develop websites for a wide variety of clients.
What will you be doing in your role at Upright?
My role at Upright Communications is Web Developer, which means I work on developing and maintaining our clients’ websites for mobile and desktop. I also work on design aspects of sites, such as image optimization, logo/icon creation, and video editing. I’ve also been able to give my input on page designs for sites as well.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Music is a big part of my life. I’ve played the bass for about 7 years as well as learned guitar, drums, and piano. I like a variety of artists and genres, but my favorite artist at the moment is Ado. I also enjoy playing games with my friends after work. Being able to play online is great since we can be anywhere in the world and still connect with each other.
The Upright team is looking forward to all of the great contributions Kory will be making to our efforts. He is already helping us meet our client goals and objectives, and proven himself to be a tremendous asset.
