I’m a creative with a strong
technical background.

I have an unrelenting focus on the end-user. An engaging experience is the first opportunity to build trust in a brand. I carry this focus through to the end of the development process, creating a product that is seamless and simple to use. I love to take the time to understand the whole picture, then dive into the details and hone in on what’s critical to the success of a project. This allows the entire team to take complex problems and develop compelling experiences.
