I love to create things. My professional goal is to design ideas and information in a clear, delightful way. As a multi-skilled visual designer, I understand the intersection between design disciplines and join traditional design principles with modern html/css coding skills. I'm also an asset to any team because I'm thoughtful and thorough.
I'm an expressive, restless dreamer, who is conscientious in my work and can always improve. I have many skills and interests not limited to one particular discipline. A visual designer and production art “pixel monkey”, who likes to create things — design, illustrate, draw, paint, photograph, solve problems, read, write, think, look for inspiration, find and play music.
I'm the link between the graphic design community and the web development, more tech savvy community. It's difficult to categorize myself in anything; however, I don't like to be considered a generalist because I deeply understand visual design principles, production. My sketch note on the right illustrates a T-shaped person, with which I identify myself.
I collect music / design / illustration / geek t-shirts.
I work very full-time as a Graphic Designer/Production Artist at UBM TechWeb: Live Events Division in San Francisco. Most of my day job consists of coding html emails for multiple brands daily under very tight deadlines in a fast-paced constantly changing environment.
I've worked contract design and html production for companies such as AllBusiness.com, Accenture, Macromedia, Modem Media, and Thunk Design. I'm occasionally available for freelance work or collaboration with designers and developers.
