I am a Web Designer/Developer located in Charlotte, NC with 4 years of professional experience. Since graduating in 2012 with a BA in Web Design and Interactive Media I have worked with several large and small companies along with doing freelance projects on the side.

I enjoy keeping up to date with current trends and learning tricks of the trade from current professionals via online blogs like CreativeBloq and Smashing Magazine. My other job titles consist of CEO (Chief Encouragement Officer) for my amazing fiancée, cat wrangler (for our two cats), and sporadic gamer.

If you would like to get to know me better for a future project/job, or even just to chat, feel free to contact me.
