While attending the University of Colorado in 2009, I started my own company selling websites to small, local businesses in Boulder, Colorado. It was started with a very simple goal in mind: provide companies an effective, aesthetic, and affordable web presence in order to fund my excessive golf and travel habits. 9 years later, my USGA handicap has dropped from a 16 to a 4.8, and I have a portfolio of work spanning graphic design, web development, data management, and software engineering across a wide variety of industries - automotive, finance, culinary, retail, and law, to name a few.
I have spent time in both design and development but have found my niche by sitting between business and IT. Communication is key to bridging the gap between business needs and technical resources and I've found myself providing this value at every firm I've been employed, regardless of title.
In my 9 years operating as a freelance designer, I've worked on printed goods, customized clothing, Wordpress Themes, Squarespace and Wix customizations, Shopify Themes, and Magento E-Commerce sites.
If there is one thing that sets me apart from my competition, it is my attention to the client and my ability to address their technological needs in a way that they understand. I truly believe that my ability to communicate, both with consulting engineers and requirement providers, is my biggest strength.
There's a very high chance that we will high-five at some point during the creative process.
