INSPIRED BY DIFFERENCE.
Father. Husband. Graphic Designer. Front-End Developer. Web Designer. Artist. I have had a lot of different titles throughout my career. All of them are important in their own ways. None are more important than Husband and Father. My family is my inspiration and always comes first.
I am a Northwest Indiana based Front-End Developer working at the University of Chicago. I am constantly trying to learn new techniques and technologies to give me an edge in developing beautiful websites for U of C. I started my career in Indianapolis as a Graphic Designer honing my skills and putting in the time to learn my craft. In an ever evolving field, it’s important to continue to learn new skills and stay up to date. While I don’t believe that any project is ever perfect, that doesn’t stop me from striving to achieve perfection.
THE DETAILS MATTER.
Attention detail can take an average design and make it great. Conversely, it can also make a great design look sloppy.
01. GRAPHIC DESIGN.
It all comes back to Graphic Design. The common thread throughout my career has always been design. Without this foundation in design, nothing else matters. I have a unique ability to see the bigger picture and incorporate that vision into the design.
Front-End Development is an ever evolving skill set that is impossible to master. What drives me is continuing to learn and striving to be the best, most well-rounded developer I am capable of being.
User experience design is becoming more and more important in all aspects of the design world. Like a lot of designers out there, I have renewed my focus on UX and UI in an effort to better understand the needs of the audience. This has been a journey that I am happy to take and eager to learn more about.
RESULTS DRIVEN DESIGN.
Every designer strives to deliver results in the products we work on. In order to deliver those results, it has been necessary to accumulate a myriad of skills along that journey. Below are a list of my most prominent skills.
I feel it is important to not only highlight my skills, but to give an honest assessment of where I stand in any given area. I am a work in progress and I continue to look for great partners to help bolster those skills.
