design by m.y.

web development = my passion

Web design, user experience, interaction design, information architecture ... bits and pieces of each area make up my passion and I'm working towards figuring out my niche and fulfilling my dreams.
I graduated with a BA in Information Technology and Informations in 2003 from Rutgers University. Looking for a job right after college was quite the struggle. I was disappointed that I didn't get a call back after having an interview with McGraw Hill for a Website Production Assistant. I happened to get a job at Sony Music Entertainment where I grew comfortable working at for last 7+ years. About 3 years ago, I signed up for a one day workshop class at The School of Visual Arts where I knew I couldn't cheat myself by not pursuing where my heart is. I've completed 2 courses at NYU's School of Continuing and Professional Studies and have 3 more to complete towards a Web Development certification. While aiming to get my certifcation, I've been working on a few websites including a site that will be part of a Sony DADC web application.
Designbymy.com will be a collection of my projects, thoughts, references and resume. If you would like to contact me, please feel free to send me an email.
Thank you,
Melissa Young
