About Me

The Arts & Technology have always held a strong influence on me. This intersection between those two disciplines leads to amazing applications & user experiences.

The process begins with a conversation & comes to life by applying creativity & problem solving to create a unique user experience. From creating custom characters & animations for Speech Pathology’s web applications to building both the front- & back-end for the virtual memorial, Development & Content Creation is about the journey as much as the destination to me. I look forward to learning new tricks & tackling new problems.
