Jamie Schroeter
About Me

I'm Jamie and I'm a creative web developer. Not only do I enjoy hand coding websites, I love making them as pretty as possible! I just love going through the design process - starting with an idea, deciding how it will look, and then making it happen.

In my last life, I spent some time in the human service industry, working with people with disabilities. While I still volunteer in the disability community, I couldn't deny my love for the tech industry any longer! So, I got another degree in Information Technology. During the past year while completing my second degree, I also found a passion for hardcore programming and am attempting to learn as many programming languages as possible.

When I am not glued to the computer coding and designing like a maniac, I like to dabble in many different things. I love rocking out to music in my car as well as tinkering on my piano. I own a German violin from the 1800s and play with the Menomonee Falls Symphony every week.
