Your web presence, perfected.
UX / UI Design
Intuitive, easy and beautiful. The most effective products and services are the easiest ones to use. Through A|B testing, focus groups and a user centered design process, I focus on making applications that people love to use.
Availability, distribution and consistency. You want your content accessible instantly 24/7, and I know which tools will ensure it. Let me take care of the databases and distribution, servers and scalability so you can focus on making your customers happy.
Test Driven Development
"A goal without a plan is just a wish..." I begin development by first writing front and back end tests so I always have a clear path towards achieving specific design and data structure requirements that meet all of your needs.
Incredible projects are achieved when passionate and dedicated people continually engage in open communication. I'm honest about what I can do and what I need from you to make that happen, so let's have fun making awesome things together.
Rapid iteration, daily reflections and smart task management. Being agile means I set hourly goals, track specific accomplishments and continuously review progress. I get work done efficiently and effectively.
Search engine optimization, coordinated social media and print campaigns, live events. Whatever your mission, we'll work together to reach your audience and convert more customers through research and data based solutions.
My experience in different fields provide valuable skills from different industries and ultimately led me here to my true passion, digital design and development.

I researched, wrote and edited local and national news stories at the discretion of the editor. I was paired with a staff journalist who mentored me on effective communication, meaningful inquisitions and understanding the unspoken.

There's a lot I already know about web design and development, and I still learn something new everyday.
I'm a lifelong learner dedicated to learning and teaching every day.
Digital Media Studies
University of Rochester
Rochester is the ideal place to explore the connections between digital technology, critical analysis, production, and innovation. Our digital media studies (DMS) major combines: An interdisciplinary approach to the liberal arts A tradition of expertise in imagining and entrepreneurship Ties to the George Eastman Museum, the world’s oldest photography museum and one of the oldest film archives A University-wide commitment to supporting digital technology and the arts We believe that those who understand the history and theory of media will be better producers of them. Likewise, those who know how media are produced will be better able to analyze them. As a result, DMS is one of the few majors in the nation that combines the study, analysis, and interpretation of media with its production.
