Kimberly Holmes (916) 538.2194

Greetings! I'm Kim!

I've been developing compliant, usable sites since 2008. I'm absolutely passionate about my work with HTML/CSS, JavaScript/jQuery, PHP, Java, and any and all things web development related.

In addition, I love creating graphics. I began using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign right around the same time I began coding - a young kid, maybe 15 at the time, and still figuring the world out. Just like with web development, I have been creating web graphics and illustrations for five years now.

This site details my work experience, a few portfolio examples, and gives an overview of my skills and areas of expertise.

What I like to do...

  • JavaScript/jQuery
  • Responsive Design
  • Java
  • Version Control: PVCS, Git, Subversion, and Mercurial
  • Adobe: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign
