With more than 20 years of experience in interactive marketing and digital design, I've worked in disciplines including user experience design, web design, interactive strategy, content design, copywriting, project and account management, digital photography, website management, and WordPress development. I’ve built my career around the convergence of these roles, a strategic approach to design, the necessity of collaboration, and the embrace of opportunities to help businesses make experiences that resonate in the moment, and linger long after.

Design and technology have been a constant in my life since I made my first website on Geocities in 1999, before the days of CSS and responsive sites, and before the abundance of open source knowledge, tools, and inspiring work that got us to where we are today. I was obsessed with Flash in its heyday, mourned its demise and thought the web was going to get incredibly boring as a result, and what do you know… it only got better. My obsession for using and creating memorable digital experiences can be summed up in a single statement I made to a former web design professor a couple years ago: “I’m doing exactly what I left college wanting to do.”

Outside my professional life, I take a lot of photos, and make music as often as I can as The Ageless Sea. Whether it’s digital design, photography, or songwriting, creativity is a constant, and as I look for new opportunities, I’m excited to see how I can use my experiences and skills to help businesses, start-ups, and individuals make things better.
