I have a passion for branding and it greatly influences my work. I believe a successful product is one that communicates it's identity through disciplined visuals and clear, tonally-consistent content.
While I care deeply for a beautiful, brand-abiding product, usability and functionality are very important to me. I would gladly spend 90% of my time solving user-stories before I opened a single Adobe program.
I would describe my design style as boring and developer-friendly: I love carefully chosen typography, precise layouts, and understated flourishes. A comment-heavy, spartan stylesheet is my favorite.
I completed my B.F.A in 'Applied Media', with a concentration in corporate branding and identity, at the Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. I am a self-taught web developer and designer.
In my spare time, I enjoy Pittsburgh sports, playing basketball, and painting. I also manage a variety of side projects.
