I am a self-motivated, detail oriented, web / graphic designer and front-end developer based in South Florida. I get excited about solving problems with visual designs and I have an insatiable appetite to continually push design elements and technologies to create best-in-class solutions.
Over twenty five years experience with a myriad of increasing and diverse technical and graphic arts positions. I possess an MBA with a concentration in Information Technology. This has given me a clear understanding of how to address a company's needs, manage projects within time and budget constraints, and acted as a springboard for addressing the technical aspects of design.
My career foundation is in print and packaging design and I am fully adept at digital formats. I'm enthusiastic about UI/UX, researching and understanding the user, their journey and pain points; then addressing and creating the best solution. Effective design communicator and problem solver. I use Adobe Creative Suite consistently and hand code several of my web projects. Experienced with HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, W3C standards, responsive design and cross browser implementation. Knowledge of Wordpress, PHP, JQuery, React, Storybook, SQL, SEO/SEM techniques, and UI/UX design.
Books I read in a year. Some educational but mostly fiction and I love a good British detective mystery.
Things still left on my bucket list. From sky-diving to chilling in outer space, the list goes on.
Cups of tea I drink monthly. Between green teas and herbal teas I have to get my fix at least once a day.
The only source of knowledge is experience.
Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.
Talent you have naturally. Skill is only developed by hundreds of hours of work.
