Digital Strategist & Interactive Designer

Not knowing what's around the corner is what I'm interested in.

Born 1985

The web is an extremely flexible environment. When an idea and meaningful content come together it can be fun and enlightening. So with that said, every day from here on out is limitless.

I graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from K-State in sunny Manhattan, KS. While living and studying in Manhattan I was given the amazing opportunity to work under Lindsay Smith, Beach Museum Exhibitions Designer, and not only learn a great deal about how to maintain and prepare art for showing, but also how to display art and information so that a museum visitor was invited into a gallery and flow piece to piece.

From the museum, I was given the opportunity to intern at Brockton Creative Group as a graphic designer. After the internship ended I was offered a full time position as a web designer and front-end developer. Since then, I have been able to organize an interactive department and maintain daily projects ranging from; client interaction, PHP backend setups, full front-end coding, website planning and user interface design.
