Hi, thank you for taking the time to visit. I’m Charles, and I’m a web developer + designer that not only delivers great work but is also ever-evolving and eager to learn more to be the best I can be. Wanna talk? Contact me here, or at charles@cappiah.com.


I began with a graphic design background back in high school. After high school, my interests had changed and I had decided to get into computer programming. I took the program for two years, and getting to the end of the program I had the opportunity to go into Humber's post-graduate web development program for a year.

These two programs combined provided me with irreplaceable experiences that I will always remember. Multiple values and practices were instilled in me throughout the course of my education at Humber - hard work, overcoming obstacles gracefully and learning how to manage projects both my own and others within a team environment.

Since then, I've built up some experience working in a web development company and then in the head office of a retail company working on their web store. In the future, I may go back to school for front-end development to strengthen my skills, but I do definitely want to also delve into project management at some time.

In my spare time I read, watch boxing and basketball and work on my singing. I really want to find time to learn the piano, as it's always been something I've wanted to learn.


Here are some of the projects I've done. Some I've designed, others I've coded. Click on a project for more information!

Fort Frances Promotional Video

  • Fort Frances Promotional Video

  • Project Type:Web

As an extra challenge given by my ASP.NET professor, I had to create a Silverlight video player. I was able to implement common play, pause and stop functionality along with a progress bar that stops when the video's paused and then continues when the video is unpaused. The buttons were created in Photoshop, and the design of the player was done in Microsoft's Visual Studio 2010. Click to View Live

Ghana Football Associaton Web Advertisement

  • Ghana Football Associaton Web Advertisement

  • Project Type: Web
  • Role: Web Designer/Developer
What better way to advertise than with a Flash advertisement? When the ad begins, a soccer ball designed in the country's flag bounces until it's out of view. You are then shown ways of supporting the team with hats, vuvuzelas and shirts! Lastly, the Ghana Football Association's logo appears, and a link is provided so you can learn more about the team.

  • Project Type: Web
  • Role:Web Designer/Developer
This portfolio is fully database driven - all text has been stored in the database, and frequent calls are being made to the database through PHP and SQL code.
