about me

UX/UI Design

I design super cool websites and applications that reflect brand identities. I love creating designs that interact with user input.

Development

There’s nothing more fun than seeing your design come to life. I’ve been building websites and applications for over 6 years.

WordPress Expertise

I learned to code with WordPress, so naturally I love creating with it. I’ve built everything from easy-to-manage corporate sites to custom web applications with it.

Audio Engineering

I’ve been writing and recording music for over a decade. I know the ins and outs of how to shape and manipulate sound that will make a good song a great song.
