About Me

When I was five years old, a neighborhood cat bit me. While I was crying and wailing and questioning everything I knew about life, like how cats were supposed to love me as much and as aggressively as I loved them (all, collectively), my mom cleverly stuck me in front of the computer. As she tore through the phone book trying to find a doctor who’d take me on a Sunday, a hush fell throughout the house – I had stopped crying. Why? Because of this:

Wingdings. The best thing about our old IBM computer (aside from Kid Pix, obviously), and coincidentally, the spark that ignited my passion for design. I was so fascinated and so focused on making patterns and writing “stories” with Wingdings that nothing else mattered – not even the fresh wound I had that day, which ended up needing half a dozen stitches.

To this day, beginning a project gives me a thrill unlike any other. I’m passionate about finding effective solutions for my clients’ objectives and I aim to produce websites and print materials more engaging, more usable, and more manageable than my clients can imagine. (I’d venture to say my toolkit has expanded just a bit, too.)

Whatever, show me what you can do.
