What Sets Me Apart

I have a deep passion and understanding for both the technical, and creative process of web projects. While my creative experience allows me to effectively problem solve visual and interactive elements that are best in mind for the user, my technical experience allows me to create that solution in a way that is most efficient for the device running the web app.

I also believe that web production is not a solo effort, but one that requires collaboration and communication between people who can both compliment and challenge each other to be better at their craft. These are the ideals I never stray from in order to be the best designer I can be for myself, my co–workers, and the end users.
