I am experienced in many facets of technology, design, and marketing. From 2005 until 2012, I worked as a freelance graphic and web designer / developer. Prior to this experience, I worked as a system and network computer engineer for over ten years. In June, 2016 I graduated with Distinguished Highest Honors (top 2%) from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication; focusing on media effects, marketing, advertising, writing, and multimedia art.

I am proficient in the Adobe Creative Design Suite, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and a number of other programs from the design world. I am an experienced researcher, writer, and editor. This is a small varied sample of my print, design, programming, writing, and art work. For additional examples, please contact me directly.
