Matthew R. Tiller
I am an artist, graphic designer, photographer, web developer and IT specialist. I am always in search of the next project or challenge. My main focus, and most intense learning is in the LAMP Stack, and WordPress. I’ve been using WordPress from version 1 on down. Aside from WordPress I’ve worked on magazines, and promotional material to support the marketing department, and outside clients. I’ve also worked with branding, and have built brands in the past. I have real world experience in networking businesses and insuring that technology facilitates business functions.
I have held a total of four separate positions as a graphic designer tasked to develop a variety of marketing materials.
Each position led to web design, where I’ve used a variety of CMS platforms, server equipment, and scripting skills.
Because I work in web design, networks simply became familiar to me, and I was depended upon in this area.
What other excuse to climb a mountain, or backpack through the Amazon. Every chance I get I’m outside with a camera.

Ivy Tech Community College Columbus, Indiana August 2004 to April 2007
Associates Degree in Visual Communications with a Specialty in Web Design and Photography
Faith Publishing Services – Graphic Designer, Event Photographer, IT Technician 2007 to 2008
The primary function of this position was to lay out magazine articles into an established brand, and to design various marketing materials for the Catholic Diocese. In addition to act as the supervisor for technical companies maintaining server equipment and company infrastructure. One of the highlights in the network administration part of this position was restructuring the automated voice prompt phone system. As the collapse of 2008 gained momentum positions at this business dwindled.
Lees Tax Services – Graphic Designer, Web Developer, Backup IT Technician 2010 to 2012
I developed five separate corporate franchise businesses mainly dealing with taxes and accounting for Lee’s Tax City. This position included developing all branding and marketing material in both print and web. Managing ecommerce functionality across all five Joomla! CMS platforms, and insuring transactions consolidated down to one income stream and one membership hub. When we arrived at a final product the business owners failed to apply the concept due to low demand and other administrative complications pertaining to the business structure. Lee’s Tax City returned to exclusively running a tax prep franchise. I decided to seek out more stable employment.
Corporate Advanced Services – Graphic Designer, Web Developer 2012 to 2013
Corporate Advanced Services managed a startup business called Senior Talk. Under this business name I developed promotional material for a variety of trendy “As Seen on TV” products. When the companies phone was discovered to have a serious flaw (the 911 button would not contact 911) the business collapsed. During my time at CAS I carried two full time positions in web development & graphic design, as well as information technology manager for the Ghoman Brothers.
The Ghoman Brothers – Information Technology Manager 2010 to 2014
I managed the technology needs of two hotels, and three pizza franchise locations. Work consisted of one part marketing department, one part IT department, and backup hotel accounting. I developed any promotional material needed for an array of businesses. Troubleshooting and networking business computers, printers, credit card machines, security cameras, and any other equipment needs was a common task. After the Ghoman Brothers started loosing their franchises I began searching for a stable position.

Three Dimentional Design
My latest endeavors are not at a skill level I can tally up really. Only that they involve Blender 3D and Python programming. I would never have reached for such ambitious expertise without first gaining all the above skills. This work is brilliantly amazing, and I’ll post everything I do on this website. Thank you for stopping by my humble corner of the internet to evaluate my skills.
