Designer

Offering 11+ years of experience in creative design/development.

As a contractor to many different companies, I have had to continuously learn and assimilate new technologies. I have a passion for user experience, learning, and finding new creative ways to solve problems.

I am a team player and a self-starter. I’m comfortable on my own, since many of my contracting opportunities have been remote. I have learned excellent methods of organizing and managing my time.

I have strong communication skills with a knack for clear translation and interpretation of needs between technical and non-technical staff. Yes, I am a nerd. I love simple, clean, design. I thoroughly enjoy conversations with developers. It makes me feel smarter.
