Experience

Freelancer/Contractor – 2003 – Present

For over 15 years I have worked as an independent contractor and employee providing graphic design, web design, and web development services to hundreds of companies ranging from small to large and in many industries. Simply put, I am a designer with a strong background in web development.

I have worked for and collaborated with many other designers as well as business developers, software engineers, web & application developers, publishers, photographers and marketing professionals.

My philosophy and approach to design and development is simple: provide solutions and build practically.
