About Me

When you look at my desk, the first thing you’ll see is a huge  computer monitor. But when you take a closer look, you’ll see things I’ve 3D printed, little paper minis, a Silhouette Portrait cutter. There are colored pencils, various mini rulers, markers, and bins full of other maker materials on – and in – the cabinet behind my desk.

I have a Prusa 3D printer hanging out in the kitchen and am looking to get a laser printer (they’re not actually printers…) or a CNC machine.

Basically, all of this is to say I enjoy creating things – whether its something that’s going to be strictly digital or going to end up sitting on my table.

My Story and Skills

Creativity started early for me and I stuck with it, teaching myself Photoshop 4. After earning my Associates of Fine Arts, I found an entry level job at a small company in the financial industry and after a year or so there, I was able to convince my boss that there was a need for a graphic designer to help bring a cohesive look to the company’s messaging and that was the start of my career in design.

Around 2011, I started a web design business, focused on small businesses. Using WordPress as the platform, I’m able to focus on my clients and build them something that fits their needs.

I enjoy the challenge of finding innovative solutions and I love working with a team.
