Welcome! I have over 10 years of history as a professional coder and designer with experience in multiple industries. The bulk of my experience is in website development. I've also worked as a graphic designer, apparel designer, architectural designer, and photographer.

Design is everywhere, from the computer in front of you to the car you drive and the clothes you wear. Someone, somewhere, designed and created those things.

As a person with an eye for detail the design profession seemed like a perfect match for me from an early age. I love to research, plan, and create. I can't imagine doing anything else with my life. I enjoy discussing modern design trends, learning new techniques, and figuring out how things are built and work. Reading design and technology news on a daily basis is an important part of my life.

Among other things I have played with css3, html5, javascript, responsive & mobile websites, parallax, LAMP, MEAN, and mobile apps.

If I had to pick a few of my favorite things other than a computer, they would be:

  • Frisbees
  • Bicycles
  • Cars
  • Music
  • CMYK
  • Fonts

All good design comes from proper planning. Knowing a project's constraints leads to efficient, cost effective, feasible, and sustainable designs. Using a one-size-fits-all approach isn't just inefficient, its detrimental. I start by analyzing your project needs and coming up with a few good options for how to proceed. Most clients want to maximize their website's ROI (return on investment) and lower their maintenance costs.

This website was created by hand in very little time as a placeholder while I slowly find time to design a new one. It is as minimalist and to the point as possible. Feature creep is easy and minimalism is hard.

This website is currently running on my customized web-server platform based on Linux and Virtual Machines.
