About Me

I am a digital story teller, illustrating with CSS and narrating with Javascript across the HTML canvas of the digital universe.

Credited with designing, wireframing, prototyping and developing user journeys for the front and back ends of businesses. My extreme attention to detail and ability to empathize with users drives all that I create.

In my spare time I am a musician, an animal lover, a scuba diver and a gamer/game modder.

I have recently worked with Dark Matter Coffee, Envisionit Agency, Slack and Company, OptioRx, Braun Pharmacare, The Pet Apothecary & Maestro Health in a variety of areas ranging from UX to technical implementations. Most recently I designed and built a mobile interface for Dark Matter Coffee, allowing their customers to place coffee and food orders for pickup at individual coffee shops through their website. Previously, they only sold bags of coffee beans online and were not linked into each store’s POS system. The interface was designed for mobile and has allowed them to maintain normal business and increase the safety of customers during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
