about who?

Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.

 Lewis Carroll
(Alice in Wonderland)

Puzzle indeed. I am an experienced designer and artist working in a variety of different mediums. I specialize in bridging gaps and creating customized solutions when standard options just don’t work. Thus, design = solving puzzles. If you’d like to learn more about my previous work and interests, please visit the Portfolio/Projects section and the Creative Journal. Also, reach out to me via social media or simple email via the Connect page.

Speaking more specifically though, I have over 15 years experience in graphic arts & design, customer service, logistics and project management.

My previous work has included 4-color print media, web design, display installations, and event lighting. Management experience includes supervising staff from 4-20 people. Most recently I completed a Front End Web Developer course with a full background in HTML, CSS and WordPress. I also have Adobe Associate Certification for Illustrator, Photoshop and Premiere.

Almost all of my software/hardware comprehension is self-taught and when I can’t create a solution with a tool that I’m using, I find a better or different tool. And when appropriate, I venture outside of the usual boundaries and choose to mix and match genres/tech to create the solution. Check out the Experiential section of Portfolio to see some perfect examples of that.

Lastly, I appreciate witty and weird humor. So consider me a safe haven where you can let your freak flag fly.

Thanks for being here!
