10 and 90 has a very important meaning to me, as it stands for “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” You see, I was injured playing football 11 years ago on July 2, 2003 where I broke my neck. I now use a wheelchair to get around, but I have always stayed positive and continue to fight everyday on my journey to walk again. This site is something that I wanted to do so I could get my story out there to more people. I wanted to create something that was very engaging to the user and pleasing for them to view. It needed to draw them in and keep them wanting more.
Using a big video on the home page is something that captures the users attention as it is a fairly new technique. I also wanted subtle colors to “pop” out of the blacks and greys and whites of the site. This was a personal site, but one that I am proud of, hope you enjoy!
