profile

My name is Stephen Kelley, I am a front end web developer, graphic designer, and IT consultant. My long history and passion for web development and graphic design began way back when I got my first computer at age 16, and is still going strong 15 plus years later.

As a Massachusetts native, I attended UMASS Amherst where I achieved a bachelor degree with individual concentration focus in Interactive Multimedia and Computer Graphics along with a minor in IT. It was there I met an inspiring professor, who I later co-authored the book Computer Graphics Using OpenGL, 3rd Edition.

After completing the book, I moved to Brooklyn were I stayed self employed as a web developer and graphic designer until 2008. I still work with a majority of those same freelance clients.

In August 2008, I started at Terra Holdings LLC, a luxury real estate company that owns and operates Halstead and Brown Harris Stevens, as a front-end web developer. In the past 6 years at Terra, we have won Web Marketing Association's Web Award every year, along with the prestigious W3 Award, which honors creative excellence on the Web.

Education

I majored in Interactive Multimedia & Computer Graphics. With a minor in IT. That nerd enough for you?

University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Graduated 2003
Bachelor Degree with Individual Concentration (Interactive Multimedia & Computer Graphics) & Minor Information Technology

UMASS provided an opportunity to create my own major. I selected courses from Computer Science, Engineering and Art to create an Interactive Multimedia degree track for myself.

While at UMASS, I had two jobs for the University. I produced, edited, and videotaped lectures to be distributed as distance learning courses for online and DVD. This research lab was called RIPPLEs, Research In Presentation Production for Learning Electronically (pretty solid acronym right?). My position at RIPPLEs led me to meet Dr. F.S Hill Jr., whom I would co-author a texbook with (more details below) for Prentice Hall. Second job at UMASS was for the Office of Information Technology's PC Hardware Support. I had the luxury of repairs the campus community's desktop, printers and laptops. I know my way around jumpers, ribbon cables, and tiny screws.

Dr. Hill and I worked on number of distance learning projects together during my time at UMASS. After assisting him in teaching his graduate level computer graphics course based on his textbook, he asked me to assist in revising the 3rd edition of that book. Dr. Hill had suffered a stroke and needed specific technical skills to complete this project. To this day, I am extremely grateful to Dr. Hill for allowing me to a work along side him on this project.
