About me

Ajuan Mance

Web Developer, Artist and Illustrator, Digital Humanities Specialist

Coding and web development come together as an exciting and dynamic medium in which to create, share ideas, provide access to information, and facilitate commerce. I use my experience as an artist, illustrator, designer, and writer to build compelling and unique web-based projects, from digital storytelling, to small batch archival work, to freelance assignments.
