Welcome! How may I help you?

I call myself a Web Designer first and foremost, yet I have skills and passions in many areas of graphic design, marketing, print media, computing, internet, programming, design, and troubleshooting. Okay, I lied a little. I'm not passionate about troubleshooting but I seem to have a mind that's tuned to that sort of thing.

I began studying illustration and design in 2007 at Virginia Commonwealth University and started teaching myself web design in 2010. Since then, I have redesigned my current employer's entire website all on my lonesome (oh the joys of being the company's sole Graphic/Web Designer) and have been working as a freelancer on the side. In a nutshell, that means that I sit at my shiny computer all day long creating snazzy designs for cool folks from around the world. It's great!

As a web and graphic designer, I have the privilege of helping clients create unique and memorable experiences. I enjoy the entire creative process, having built up experience the last 6 years in visual design and front-end web development. I strive to communicate clear messages that call users to action. I want to create things that help others succeed.
