I've been working as a web designer for over 5 years now. I believe that empathy and imagination are the most important traits of any designer and nowhere is this more apparent than on the web. I start every project with the end in mind first, and always stop to question if the colors, fonts and spacing I choose are supporting the client's goals.
The web moves quickly and I'm excited to absorb all of the skills and knowledge I can to build beautiful and efficient interfaces. Every website I build is fully responsive using the latest techniques of HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery. I have extensive experience developing custom Wordpress themes and have begun developing Shopify themes as well.
My college days of analyzing literature may be behind me, but my passion for the written word hasn't faded. In every job I've held post-college, I've found myself utilizing the skills I picked up from my oft-misunderstood degree nearly every day. It's a big advantage to be able to write and edit the copy needed for the websites, blogs and email marketing I am creating.
Who doesn't love a good dog? They're fast, friendly and svelte - just like a good website. Besides, if I've learned anything from years of American advertising it's that there are three ways to move a product: sex appeal, babies and animals. So, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em… and I think I would've lost some customers if I had chosen either of the first two on that list.
