Hello…

My name is Hassan Elhassan, and i am a front-end web developer in the Washington DC area.

I have been developing websites for more than 7 years, working on various projects based on ideas, themes, illustrations, existing foundations and from scratch. I discovered my creativity from Myspace in 2007, when I taught myself HTML and CSS in order to customize my profile page with unique features, and make it stand out from the rest.

A year later, I started working for “Profiles & Profiles”, a small marketing company that pushed my creativity to the limits. I designed menus, business cards, brochures, flyers, and websites for local businesses. Working there for 3 years, taught me “business” and valuable life factors.

Having acquired a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology (Web Development) and a minor in Business, I expanded my creative thinking process further, and learned significant business values.

Currently, I work as a front-end web developer for a leading interactive agency that provides services in Web design and development, Salesforce, and technology consulting to non-profits.
