Hi, I’m Randal Pope, and I have been a web designer since I was 14. I started back in the days of MySpace, Xanga, and 800x600px screen sizes. At 16 I took a class on basic HTML at Rodman Public Library, which launched me forward into studying Web Design & Development at Stark State College, having my own freelance web design business for over a year, and currently, Front End Developer at WRL Advertising.

I am always ready for the next challenge, to push the limits of my abilities, and push the envelope on web design.
