What I Do

profilePic

I would say I’m a visual designer and story teller. I like to have my hands in a little bit of everything when it comes to design; I wear many hats so to speak.

Graphic Design Icon

I am a Graphic Designer.

I like working with many aspects of print design: type, layout, color, information, composition, posters, infographics, and icons. I like creating clean yet interesting layouts, repurposing information to give it new life, or finding the best image to represent an idea.

Web Design Icon

I am a Web Developer and Designer.

I don’t just like designing websites but coding them, working with user experience and interface, and making sites that are easy to navigate and pleasant to look at. I like creating an experience through one of the biggest platforms of the present time. I also like the fluidity of the web and the interactivity it promotes.

Education Icon

I am a Non-Traditional Educator.

I am not the traditional teacher with her white board and attendance sheet. However I do love finding new ways to express and teach important ideas to the next generation. I like providing knowledge to others and helping them understand it, even if it may have been difficult before.

Animator Icon

I am an Animator & Video Editor

Animation, video editing, audio editing. As someone who grew up in theater and dance, it should be no surprise that working in motion is like a first language to me. I like telling stories and what better way to do that then to show the story. I like working with camera angles, finding the right song to evoke emotion, and having the freedom of movement to tell a story.
