I am a web and UX designer. Designing and developing a helpful and better experience is my bread and butter. You got me, I admit it, I'm a nerd for great usability. I'm also a fan of Hayao Miyazaki, growing ridiculous amounts of jade, and hanging out with my fat (yes he's on a diet) cat Merle.
My story began as a little kid reading the sunday paper comics and dreaming of being a great cartoonist. I wasn't very comical. So my dreams grew as my awe of beautiful design did. Soon my passion showed itself and morphed into creating not just for beauty, but for purpose.
So here I am, researching, developing and designing people's stories into websites and businesses for a reason. Helping others to make a mark in the world with their own unique story. In the meantime I'll be sketching, playing volleyball and strolling through the great outdoors.
