Personal Statement

I am a designer and developer, mostly in the digital realm. But I also design for print.

My father taught me to be curious. He taught me to discover how things work and why some things don't work and how to make them work better. In other words, he taught the essence of good design.

Thank you for viewing my résumé. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Oh, and we really should work together.
