Summary:

A little bit about myself,  I was born when Frank Sinatra and Bea Arthur were electrically fused together during a lunar eclipse in a Las Vegas sauna. As a young child, I was drawn to dance. However, my dreams of being a competitive clog dancer came to a screeching halt. The papers referred to it as “The Butter Debacle.” It was only then I decided to give this whole art & design thing a try.

I would like to point out that some of my original paragraph may or may not be factually accurate. It was mainly to see if you were actually reading this.    

So… I’m a senior leveled creative with strong UX and design chops. I have years of experience, with a wide client range — from the music industry to advertising, to non-profits. I’m a driven problem solver and work extremely well under pressure. My skill set and diverse design background make me unique in many ways. I design and build ideal user experiences for all facets of business – service design, web design, print development, video, animation and more.
