Pixel pusher by trade, problem solver by choice.

A past professor once said "It's our job, as designers, to know everything." In knowing as much as possible, designers are better equipped to tackle the challenge at hand. Details that seem trivial — as small as a single pixel — build to create a cohesive and pleasant user experience.

Successful design should make sense of the uncertain, and simplify the complex.

Learning is my passion, especially new software, programming languages and time-saving techniques. Which makes me a regular jack of all trades — and master of many.

A few of the programs I know:

  • After Effects
  • Illustrator
  • InDesign
  • Photoshop
  • Premiere Pro
  • Cinema 4D
  • Final Cut Pro
  • HTML / CSS
  • jQuery
