Kelly Mulry's Portfolio & Résumé

This portfolio is currently under construction. It doesn't 100% show my skills yet. You can, however, check out my web development projects to see completed works.

Introduction

Hello there!

I'm Kelly Mulry

You may know me better as trainerkelly (the "trainer" is figurative).

– Creative with a capital "C", aspiring entrepreneur, web developer, author, illustrator, and a pretty passionate person.

I've been making websites since I was in elementary school and gradually learned to code HTML & CSS mostly on my own while I was still in school. Websites are my favorite way to share what I love and am passionate about!

I got my first true introduction to JavaScript in 2019, but was left with no clue on how to actually use it until I relearned it in 2023. Then I built an app to help me learn over 3000 Japanese words from a custom wordlist.

I don't really have a lot of certifications because I tend to just take the information and use it. If I do have a certification, you can generally assume I didn't really use it outside of the course. Maybe with the exception to Japanese. And anything I have proof of otherwise.

I've been drawing 2001 and writing since 2002. My style for drawing is influenced by anime & manga, while my writing is influenced by light novels. It has always been my job, even if it hasn't always looked that way.

I have over 10+ years of retail and customer service experience, including about 2~3 years of leadership experience.

I'm a passionate manga fan and read in both English and Japanese (even if I don't understand much at the moment). I also love light novels. I enjoy RPG/action/adventure video games. I enjoy anime as well, but I don't watch it too often because I'm more of reader than a watcher. When I'm not working or learning, I'm probably reading manga or playing video games.

Learning

I'm usually learning something at any given moment. This gives you a sense of what I'm interested in doing and what I'm actively pursuing. Think I would be the perfect fit, if only I had certain skills? Perhaps I'm learning it right now – checkback in 2 ~ 3 months to see where I am.

    I have a bit of understanding of UX Design and wireframing, but I generally find it really boring to do myself unless it's a project I'm 100% responsible to start and see to completion.

    I also have briefly used Bootstrap, GIT, PostgreSQL (super fun!), BASH, and a bit of APIs.

    Projects

    TrainerKelly's Japanese Learning Session

    Version 1.1.1

    I wanted to build an app inspired by HooLogic's RealKana, but for vocabulary since January 2022. I wanted to learn from a custom word list I had made, but had no easy & efficent way to study it.

    Around March/April 2023, I decided to sit down and properly learn JavaScript using a combination of freeCodeCamp and Scrimba. At the end of July 2023, I was frustrated that the app *did not exist yet* and realized I now have the skills to build it.

    So I did.

    This is only version 1. There are a handful of glitches and other issues, but the basic functionality (select words, type the word, and validate it) all work as needed.

    You can view the work-in-progress of the application on YouTube. Watch as it goes from basic functionality to a full-blown app!

    Art Commissions by Kelly Mulry

    You can learn more about my art commissions in the Personal & Business Projects.

    I am including this in my web development projects because I utilized many skills (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, design, copywriting). It's one of the few finished pieces I have on the internet.

    Personal & Business Projects

    This is a passion project: personal and business. I don't want to talk about it too much right now. You can, however, view the temporary homepage

    You probably noticed – this portfolio you are on right now is hosted on it.

    Art Commissions by Kelly Mulry

    I make custom illustrations for people. I offer two styles: Vibrant Daydreams and Chibi. I specialize in what I call "anime selfies", though I enjoy drawing fan charcters and original characters too. Art commissions are currently limited to a single character with no or super simple backgrounds.
