I am a practicing graphic designer and entrepreneur with a forward-thinking approach to communicating through the tools and methodologies of good design. While I am a life long student of design, my passion for digital has led to a genuine focus on ux design, web, animation and interactive experiences. I relish dynamic typography, creative coding, time based/motion graphics, data visualization, visual literature and design authorship.
