The Designer
Over the past several years I have produced a large variety of visually striking and innovative designs with uncompromising quality and attention to detail, but always with exceptional speed and efficiency. My design experience ranges from cutting edge, interactive web design to developing the critical user interface elements of the checkout process. From doing client webpages for MTV and Microsoft, to leading and directing the web design of entire companies, I have confidence that my deep experience and creative skills will be a valued asset to any company.

The Objective
The perfect opportunity is one that allows me the freedom to do what I am best at, create! As a Director or Designer, I seek a company that respects the importance of design and strives to deliver the most polished, professional, and intuitive experience to its customers.
