Who I Am
Hands on problem solving is my passion.
Having a background in creative design & education in studio art, I approach each task with a level of attention to detail that favors innovative solutions over convention.
I grew up in Westford, Massachusetts. Small-town suburban lifestyle certainly promoted my affinity for collecting diverse hobbies. Before design, it was art - and music before that. Composing & live performances, screen printing apparel, commercial & fine art printing, archival documentation, framing & presentation fabrication, and more... I enjoyed anything that I could get get fully enveloped into.
From my early years as an oil painter in Boston, to being a director of UX & UI design in NYC, I feel very much at home now in the Silicon Valley. My professional experience covers a wide range of skill sets, from front-end design to responsive website development, branding & web marketing campaigns, project management & maintenance, and intensive design both on & off the computer screen.
As a goal-oriented individual, I'm always seeking my next challenge...
Incorporating my experience as a studio artist with my digital work has made what I do rewarding; though initially thought to be an unconventional transition from "timeless medium" to "cutting edge," I owe most of my strengths to my foundation as an oil painter. Of course, the most rewarding aspect of being a graphic designer is the constant growth inherently tethered to the job.
