Overview

I can bring a project from the concept phase all the way to development handoff; or focus on the individual tasks along the way including Information Architecture, User Experience, Prototyping, User Interface, Branding, and Marketing.

Overall, I take great pride in my work and strive to execute a great design and user experience.
