Photograph of me

Creative. Dedicated. Adventurous

I am a designer and technologist creating visual and interactive media using digital platforms. I have experience in both collaborative and freelance environments. My background includes problem solving, working within schedule, and creating visuals that fit best with a client's brand image.

I provided creative for many clients throughout my professional career. Such clients include healthcare agencies across North America, local automotive dealers, retailers, non-profit organizations, and more. The marketing strategies I were involved with have generated thousands of impressions. Additionally, I taught a web design class of different age groups in the local community.

I have membership in the collegiate organizations Alpha Phi Omega and Upsilon Pi Epsilon. I am an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, the honor society of Scouting.

Web & Software

Web Development

As a professional web designer for nearly half of a decade, I have designed over 30 websites for diverse clientele across the United States. Below are some examples of websites I designed.

Software Engineering

Wash It Fold It was a sharing economy web application designed for those looking for and providing laundry services. The application was a one-person project, comissioned by a start-up company, that integrated a graphical user interface, user experience, and databases and hosting provided by Amazon Web Services.
