I approach each new design as a challenge that will help me grow as a designer, developer, and an artist. My process starts with rigorous brainstorming to develop a concept to visually represent the message of the project. The rest of the project, from composition to color harmony, is built with elements to convey that message. I design with vibrant colors and rich textures to leave the viewer with a sense of depth and relation with the space. I believe it is important to interact with the image not only emotionally, but also physically, when it comes to websites.
I was born and raised in northeast Ohio and earned my bachelor's degree in studio art from Baldwin-Wallace College.
My formal training was
in fine arts and I put my secondary focus in school on computer networking/programming in order to gain a
foundation in the technical side of the
design industry. Even though I have
become more focused on web design,
my roots are hands-on drawing and it
will always be a passion of mine.
