Having earned a Bachelor of Arts in film, video and computer animation, I built my first website as an online portfolio for my animation and graphics work. It didn't take me long to realize how much I enjoyed designing websites and learning to code. It allowed me to flex my creative muscles in a logical fashion. It was a perfect fit.
In 2008 I began working for a search engine optimization company in Las Vegas, and later went to work for a full service web development firm where I enjoyed a successful career for over 8 years. As a freelance web developer, I've built complete website solutions for local businesses, created custom WordPress themes and plugins used by real estate agents across the country, and managed dozens of successful pay per click ad campaigns. Some of my recent clients include Ballen Brands digital marketing agency, The Wine Stay vacation rentals, Montana author Sam Finden, Chicago realtor Leslie Glazier, and marketing agency Tiny Planet Digital.
Have a look at my work experience or check out some of my design samples. I've been involved in many aspects of web development including design and coding, user interface, application prototyping, SEO, pay-per-click campaigns, video editing, content writing, project management, and PHP programming.
Some of my hobbies include fiction reading and writing, photography, video editing, 3D modeling, rendering, and animation, and all forms of gaming from card games to board games to video games. When I'm not sitting in front of a screen I enjoy getting outdoors for long walks, throwing of frisbees, or hikes through the beautiful desert landscape of Nevada.
I thrive on constant learning and new challenges. Above all else, I love creating "cool stuff".
