Drawing from a life of adventure and creativity that includes — trekking Mt Everest, auto racing, skydiving, designing websites and bold award winning posters for music festivals and events, I bring passion, a willingness to take risks and an eclectic brand of creativity to UX/UI and design work.
Public service, coaching kids or helping the homeless, my inspiration comes from all the things I experience in my life. I draw from my stories and the stories of those I am with. Whatever I do, my goal is to always make something better than expected.
My work is described as detailed and bold. An Award winning Graphic and Web Designer focused on Graphic Design and Usability, working with clients in private, corporate, non‐profit, and public sectors.

"I deeply appreciate the time and care you took to make the Hydro Operations web pages easy to use, graphically pleasing, and intuitive. I am also grateful for your gentle guidance/expertise that greatly assisted us in our web page revisions. We knew what we wanted, but not the best way to get there. When use stats were shared with us, the Hydro Operations SOP pages were some of (if not THE) busiest pages in the District. I think that speaks volumes".
