My story begins with the Olympic sport of Table Tennis. While playing at a tournament in the Fall of 2013, I discovered the Lindenwood University Table Tennis Team by accident. Nearly one year later I landed an athletic scholarship to play on that same team. While attending, I chose the best program that complemented exactly who I was. Dreams really do come true.

What I Do

Graphic Design / Branding

I create simple design graphics and layouts for small or large businesses. Utilizing brand identity through design is vital for recognition.

Video Production / Animation

I have 18 years of experience with cinematography and visual editing. I've created advertisements, short films, public service announcements, and graphical animations.

Web Design / Front-End Development

I've used several development languages building websites and software. I'm familiar with using Wordpress, REACT, REACT Native, .NET, .NET Core, NodeJS, HTML, CSS, jQuery, and JavaScript.

UX/UI Design

Ideation from the user to a deliverable design/product is critcal in the thinking process. Executing research and iterations properly ensures validation during website and software development. I've learned this process very well over the years.
