Personal Statement

My experience as a designer, coupled with the ability to problem-solve and write code, allows me to combine form and function to create seamless, functional, intuitive and beautiful places to showcase my client’s endeavors. While the websites I create are painstakingly hand-coded, I believe that a developer’s work is at it’s best when unseen and un-noticed.
