Profile

“I’m a web designer. I love the web. I want to help make it a more beautiful, useful, and overall better place than before. I have a diverse set of skills, and am capable of wearing many hats. But I think where I really shine is in user-centered design. I spend a lot of time thinking about how best to craft good user experiences. I can take on serveral projects at once; I’m a good multitasker. I’m proud of my work, and I keep getting better and better with each new project I take on.”
