About Header

Graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta in September of 2010 with a BFA in Web Design and Interactive Media. I am currently doing freelance work while seeking a full-time position in web design or graphic design. My passions include baseball (check out my web site prototype for teaching kids the basics of the game), music (my Soundgarden site inspired the band to get back together - well at least they got back together after I put it up!) and art/design (Illustrator and Photoshop wizardry and designing clean, engaging web sites).

My web and graphic tool kit includes many well worn hammers, including PhotoShop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash and InDesign. Other construction tools I use a lot are XHTML, CSS, JavaScript and ActionScript 3.0.

Enjoy the site! There are many examples of my work ranging from full blown web sites to logo design, splash pages, advertisements and even a corporate newsletter.

Drop me a note if you are so inspired. I'd love to here your thoughts and suggestions.
