I'm a web designer and illustrator based out of beautiful Chapel Hill, NC. I have a passion for a lot of things. Design? Sure thing. Illustration? Yes please. Front end development? Hey, why the heck not? I'm a firm believer in being well-rounded and constantly seeking out knowledge. It keeps me excited to do what I do.
I'm great at adapting to new things. New software, new environments, new teammates, new clients, new skills. I pride myself in adjusting on the fly and still leaving my mark on my work.
I'm a firm believer that designers should know how to code. I not only want to have control over what a design looks like, I often also want to know what makes it tick and why it does what it does.
I love getting stumped. Picking apart a problem, whether its code that won't quite work or a client that wants something completely new and unusual, is when things get most interesting.
My foundation is an extensive fine arts background. Long before I knew I wanted to be a designer, I was painting, drawing, and sculpting. I inject that sensibility into my design work when I get the chance.
I've worked for clients that range from single individuals to corporations like Pepsi and Hasbro. That's taught me that neither size nor budget dictate the level of quality a client deserves.
In the end, I do what I do because I love design. I want the world to work well, look beautiful, and be interesting. It also helps that I drink a lot of coffee.
A whooole lot of coffee.

Education is one of the most important things you can have. I made this shirt, a reference to Erwin Schrödinger's cat, so fellow science nerds can more easily pick each other out in a crowd.
