Designing Dreams, Coding Reality - Where Creativity Meets Code

Welcome to my portfolio! My name is Christopher Said and I am so glad that you have found your way here. On this site you will find my work in various disciplines and some background on who I am as a person. My journey to this point has been a long and complex one, but in software, I feel that I have finally found what I will do for the rest of my life.

At the moment I am a web development and programming student. That would be the "dev" in design and dev. However, my education spans many subjects and changes of plans. I started out studying journalism in an honors program. From there I transferred to a Bible college where I studied theology and missions work. It was there that my mind was wired for deep logic. I wrote many long papers where I had to synthesize sources to craft an argument. In a lot of ways, just like code! After three years there, there was a life change which led me into the workforce before deciding to go back to college. This time I studied graphic design and photography and dabbled in web. That would be the "design" in design and dev. But, the farther I got along in my studies, the more I realized that my heart was drawn to code, where logic and creativity meet! I switched my program and have been loving it since!

I am looking forward to putting the varied and fascinating skills I have learned over the years to use for an employer or client now! I don't know everything there is to know about this field, but I have learned that I am close to reaching the limit on the benefit that I can derive from a classroom. So please, look around this site and let me know if you would like me to design and develop for you!
