About Me

My Creative Edge

I have been interested in art & design since I was child

One of my earliest memories was when a fellow classmate stole my work, put it in his locker, and claimed it was his own. Knowing someone wanted to take credit for my work gave me the confidence to pursue design and further my talent.

Growing up in Rochester, NY has provided me with multiple opportunities to further develop my skill set. Exposure to great instruction during high school, followed by my studies at Rochester Institute of Technology, has positioned me to launch my career with a focus on, Interaction Design, User Experience Design and Visual Design.

My former training, combined with my passion, hard work, adaptability and natural skill, has prepared me to learn quickly, thrive in a fast paced environment, and to adapt to an ever changing technology.

Trending analysis and research for inspiration is one of the first steps that I take before anything else. Looking for upcoming trends, currently existing trends and trends on their way out the door is something that I really excel at doing.

Responsive Design

I enjoy iterating wireframe sketches and ideas until I am on the right path. There is something about putting your ideas on paper first that really helps to clarify and focus on the structure. It’s too easy to get distracted by nice clean colors, typography or images. I save that for the final touches.

Photoshop Efficiency

Having an understanding of shape, form, color and spacial awareness is what makes me the visual designer that I am today. It’s too easy to jump right into the visual because this is my strength. However, I recognize the value and power of the process, so that I don’t get too ahead of myself.
