I'm Stephen C. Sanders, and I am currently studying Geography & Geospatial Technology at Monroe Community College. In the past, I graduated from SUNY College at Brockport, where I majored in Philosophy and minored in Anthropology. I have about half a year of experience using ArcGIS Pro, and have taken coursework in GIS, spatial analysis, physical geography, human geography, world regional geography, and Python programming.
The main activity in which I partake outside of GIS and web development is genealogical research. I have been researching my family tree for around four years. I enjoy research involving New York State, veterans of the American Civil War, Gottschee, and Germany.
I am also an amateur philosopher; I have to put my philosophy degree to use somehow. I've written some neat stuff related to culture, society, and philosophical topics such as epistemology.

The Baesick WordPress theme is a responsive, customizable starter theme that is forked from wycks' WP Skeleton Theme. Originally only developed with support for the Skeleton CSS framework, I added support Bootstrap and completely overhauled the design to make it look more modern and stylish.
Willow Ridge Kennels of New York is a bernedoodle breeding and training business located in Rochester, New York. I designed and developed a WordPress website for them using the Baesick WordPress theme, which uses HTML/SCSS and Bootstrap. The site is hosted by BlueHost, and uses Google Analytics.
My old personal website was developed out of a desire not only to have a single place to put all of the information about me, but to practice designing and developing a website entirely on my own. The first full website that I ever developed. This website was built using HTML/CSS, Bootstrap, and JS/jQuery, and was hosted using GitHub Pages.
The website for the Buffalo Firefighters (Local 282) was developed by me in mid-to-late-2017 in collaboration with public relations firm e3communications, and is still used by them to this day as their main source of communication with each other and with matters that concern the general public. The website was built using WordPress and is hosted by GoDaddy.
