Visual communication leveraging the creative and technical.

My background is in design and illustration, merged with over a decade of internet development. My experience in web design and coding dates back to 1994, when I started to expand from print design and production to a skill set that encompasses a variety of media: print, web, motion graphics, video, and multimedia. Since 2008 I have specialized in designing, building, deploying, and managing websites built on the WordPress platform. From the early releases, I recognized that of the most popular content management systems, WordPress provides the best combination of power in a publishing platform with ease of use for administrators and visitors.

As a specialist in UI design and multimedia I’ve led and contributed to web-based and kiosk-based interactive multimedia projects for Fortune 500 tech companies including Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard, Sun Microsystems, NetGear, Levanta, NetApp, Applied Biosystems, Genentech, Hyperion, Citrix, and others.

My design work and digital illustrations have appeared in national and regional publications, white papers, brochures, and annual reports. I’ve also served as an instructor, leading classes in Adobe Creative Suite digital design tools including Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash and InDesign.
