Hayden Oswalt’s father, Ronald, sees this as a chance for his son to develop skills that will extend well beyond his school years.
“Hayden was searching for a way to obtain extra credit for his web design class and this seemed like a chance for my son to get real world experience while gaining life-long skills in so many areas from marketing to journalism,” said Ronald Oswalt.Hayden added, “This will help me down the road, but also learn some cool things while being involved during the X Games with my friends.”
SME Design has also implemented new features that will help Hayden and SME clients alike.
“In addition to highlighting his skill set, we worked to incorporate unique features to give him the ability to edit and publish himself and add a photo gallery,” De Leon added. “While we were at it, we looked to knock down any barriers to entry and access to social media accounts.”
