UX/UI Designer & Front-End Web Developer

 About

Who I Am

I am a Visual Designer, UX/UI Designer and Front-End Web Developer from Montpelier, Vermont. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) with a B.S. in Communication and a concentration in Graphic Design. However, my journey and experience with Web Design and Development began well before college, starting with a beginner course at my high school. Since then, design and development for the web, and occasionally even print, has been my main hobby and one true passion. I have been learning the capabilities and nuances of the Adobe Creative Suite software for over a decade. During this time, thanks to the help of many tutorials and long hours, I have also become quite proficient with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and a number of other web languages. I currently work as a UX/UI Designer for ConvergeHEALTH by Deloitte in Boston, Massachusetts.

What I Do

I create unique, usable and professional websites and applications using best practice accessibility and the latest web standards. I work extensively with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery and a number of content management systems, including Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla!, and Silverstripe. I also have experience with application development, mobile app design, responsive web design, search engine optimization (SEO), and pretty much anything else web related. Along with my web design experience, I also have experience working with various forms of print media, such as: collateral (logos, stationery, brochures), publication (newspaper and magazine advertising, publication design) and outdoor (billboards, signage, posters).
