Repair Economy Washington Website (Current Project)

Repair Economy Washington is a non-profit organization that simplifies repairs in Washington by providing an online map to help users find their nearest repair services and nurturing the repair community. Here’s how I volunteer to help make the map easier to use, the website more user-friendly and 9% more lightweight, and support the team by making web tutorials.

The Seattle Collegian website

The Seattle Collegian is a student-run newspaper of Seattle Central College. The website was launched in 2018. I joined the team in 2020 and was the first Web Manager to systemize web manager roles, make tutorials, reduced the site weight by 50%, and improve user experience. I also analyzed web analytics, suggested article trends, and trained the new Web Manager.

Gift Tanakan Blog

My blog, built in 2018, is where I have written about my growth, interests, and passion over the years. It’s also a playground to practice my WordPress skills. In 2022, I improved the web’s sustainability by moving from Dreamhost to Krystal and optimizing media. As a result, the site turned from “dirtier than 64% of web pages tested” to “cleaner than 82% of web pages tested.”
