People tell me I’m pretty great at technical art, but I like to let my work speak for itself.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work on some pretty cool projects over the years. I’m proud to share them with you, as well as sharing about myself, so you can get to know me, my process and, what I can offer to your next project. I have a lot of experience and diverse specializations, so let me start by categorizing things by topic.

UI UX & Interactive Design

When it comes to UI/UX and interactive design, I’m all about creating digital experiences that are intuitive, engaging, and accessible to everyone. I’ve got a deep love for research, and I’m always excited to dive into user data, feedback, and insights to inform my design decisions. I am experienced in using Sketch, Figma, Adobe XD and InVision.

Accessibility is a huge passion of mine, and I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the digital world, regardless of their abilities. I’m well-versed in accessibility best practices and guidelines, and I make sure to incorporate them into every project I work on. I am well-versed in ADA & WCAG Compliance, and I am currently working on renewing my certifications with A11y and Google. Whether I’m designing a sleek new app interface, revamping a website’s navigation, or conducting user testing sessions, I always keep inclusivity at the forefront.

Website & App Design

When it comes to website and app layout design, I’m all about creating digital experiences that not only look great but also function seamlessly. I’ve had the privilege of working with some big names like Walmart and Petsmart, where I honed my skills in responsive web design, mobile-first principles, and user experience optimization. Whether I’m wireframing or prototyping in XD, or developing in HTML and CSS, I’m always striving to create layouts that are intuitive, engaging, and pixel-perfect.

I also appreciate the personal touch of collaborating with small businesses. In fact, I love building relationships with my team and clients, no matter the size of the project. There’s something special about being able to contribute to the growth and success of a tight-knit team.

Media Rights and Management

In addition to my creative skills, I’ve developed a deep understanding of media rights management. I know how to properly handle licenses and waivers for acquired images, ensuring that all necessary permissions and usage rights are documented and organized.

When I’m behind the camera, I also understand how to compose shots that respect the rights of individuals and locations being photographed and avoid liability. Whether it’s obtaining model releases, securing location permits, or finding creative ways to capture scenes without infringing on others’ intellectual property, I’ve got the knowledge and experience to navigate the modern challenges of image liability effectively.

Illustration & Digital Art

I built the foundation of my technical art skills on my education at the Maryland Institute of Art, where I trained as a classically trained oil painter and digital illustrator. Since then, I’ve added graphic design and animation to my toolkit, always looking for new ways to bring ideas to life.

I love using my illustration skills to create visual branding, logos, custom icons, storyboards, and things that thrill my audience visually.
