Born in Connecticut in 1975, I grew up in the DC area with a strong passion for drawing and design. After graduating from Georgetown University In 1998 on a academic scholarship, I began as a graphic artist for my father’s publishing company Writers’ Inc - putting my art minor to full use. After a couple of years of design-focused work, I came to the realization that with a solid understanding of web programming, the possibilities were endless. Equipped with programming knowledge from classes at Georgetown and a strong interest in the world wide web, I started developing high impact websites for various companies and organizations.
This is by no means a complete list of the software I have used as I am also familiar with versioning software such as Git (Github) and SVN. I work with Firebase and familiarity with MongoDB. I have also created RokuTV and AppleTV apps.
Although my 9-5 job has me focused on programming, I nourish my creative side by taking other projects from start to finish, beginning with concept and design. I love the Adobe Creative tools such as Photoshop and Illustrator, and many times spend hours tweaking a design so it looks and feels just right.
In larger, more complex applications, you cannot work in a bubble. I regularly interact with other UX designers and code from their mockups and wireframes, moving easily between the design and programming aspects of web and app development - something that many pure coders cannot do.
I can build React Native apps that run smoothly on both IOS and Android devices, and also WebView apps using Apache Cordova.
I use WordPress for sites that need a strong content management system and eye catching design.
I love Photoshop and Illustrator. I am an expert in video editing using Final Cut X, Premiere, After Effects, etc.
