About Me

I am Chris Fornesa: creative spirit and artist. As an artist, I am carefully creative and, as a person, I am completely passionate. I am the right person to hire if you want controlled creativity, a quiet space and, at the same time, bold innovation and understanding. I am well‐versed in working with teams and facilitating client requests into intricate works of art.

My art is a combination and conglomeration of the challenges that I have faced in my life, the skills that I have fostered, and everything that I have learned thus far in this life. I like to believe that there is no such thing as talent, only progress and perseverence. With this as a part of my philosophy, I try not to make excuses for why I can't be creative, at least in some form of fashion, during the course of any day. Creativity is abundant in this world around us and, with patience and obsevation, we can find it within us.

About Me

I am Chris Fornesa: creative spirit and artist. As an artist, I am carefully creative and, as a person, I am completely passionate. I am well‐versed in working with teams and facilitating client requests into intricate works of art.

As a graphic and web designer, I have learned that the most important skill in creating a successful design is to listen to both your intuition and your client. So whether I am designing a website or creating a logo, I seek user input at every step of the way, regardless of frustrations, time, and effort. I also value the perspectives of others in crafting my designs and see every opportunity to work with someone on any graphic or web design project as a way to improve both my craft and my art as a whole.

Profile

About Me

I have found my voice in two things, art and code, but I also realize that code is an art in itself in how programmers implement our code. I began my coding journey during middle school, when I found out that HTML was the markup language that formed the structure of the web. However, it would take me almost a decade before I began to learn and understand JavaScript and peer into other programming languages. But when I realized code was one of the many ways that I could express my creativity, I began to take it more seriously and, while finishing my Liberal Arts degree, I would work on my websites every single day.

So when I had obtained the opportunity to get the IT education that I had wanted to pursue during my undergraduate career, but deterred by the knowledge that it would take approximately two extra semesters to get my degree, I immediately jumpled on the chance. As I have progressed through my prerequisites and graduate degree, I am learning, every day, how valuable code is in our lives and in the creative potential that we can all find in programming. While I do not necessarily have the traditional credentials of a programmer, I am more than capable of handling website design and creation, Java programming, and working with databases.

Political Science Resume


Profile

About Me

Being queer, autistic, disabled, and Filipino with glorious Brown skin has made me realize the importance of the political will. With my political science minor and the knowledge that I have accumulated on political motivations and policies thereof, as well as my experiencing in volunteering with the Wendy Davis and the overall Texas Democratic Party campaign in 2014, I understand what it means to educate others on the importance of local elections. At the same time, I know all‐too‐well how policies, like the lack of discrimination protections for queer, trans and intersex people in Texas, can impact the lives of individuals. Thus, I am passionate in paving the way for people like myself, and others who share these interests, to succeed on the political stage.

Featured Websites:

Dayodman.com is the website of an up‐and‐coming artist who has experience with everything in the music industry from A&R, to writing songs, video editing, and rapping.

CftxP.net is an unconventially‐designed portfolio website that I created for myself to explore new ways to work with web design and JavaScript.

Major Academic Projects:

Innovation Portfolio of Chris Fornesa was my midterm project for the Introduction to Web Design class that I took at Houston Community College for my Digital Communications certificate. But, since then, I have found ways to enhance my website using JavaScript, while maintaining the look&and&feel of the original design.

The Coder Profile application was my final project for my Software Development class that allows a user to input their contact information or log in to the application, then see a learning plan catered to them, alongside a list of contacts of their same type of programmer.
