Mark Black's Web Dev Portfolio

About Me

My name is Mark Black, and I’m a full stack web developer in Shreveport, Louisiana. This website hosts links to various projects I’ve developed from my college years to the present day.

Presently, I work for a marketing agency in Shreveport, mostly developing internal tools with Python and React, but occasionally assisting with data science projects and marketing analysis. Previously, I’ve worked in communications, providing VoIP solutions with Go and PHP.

I’m currently looking for remote full stack developer work, full time and freelancing. You can copy my email address by pressing or clicking here. Feel free to send me an email if you’re looking for a new hire, or if you’re just looking to get a website built. I’d love to give more details about my experiences as a full stack developer, and see if we can establish a fit for the job.


Bossier/Caddo Parish Covid-19 Visualizations

Visualizations of public health data relating to the Covid-19 pandemic in Louisiana. Backend API powered by, visualizations powered by React and recharts. Allows users to select and compare Covid-19 trends in each Louisiana parish.

Gotch Bible Workout App

This app models the “Gotch Bible” workout system devised by Karl Gotch, catch wrestler and martial artist. It uses the Web Storage API to persist data across sessions. Built with Preact. I occasionally rebuild this project from scratch when I want to learn a new UI system. Previous incarnations were built with Vue and React.

Old Data Visualizations

Data visualizations made independently during my college years, hosted on a page, made with d3.js and Bootstrap.
