At a Glance

My interest in the internet began at a very young age. In middle school, I taught myself HTML in order to create a webpage for my band. The band didn’t last, but my interest in building webpages (and my love for music) is still going strong. In high school, I gained access to Photoshop, and began to develop my skills in graphic design and photo manipulation. I chose to go to college at the Art Institute of Portland to pursue web design as a full-time career. During my last year there, I began work at CMD agency, and continued to work there for a couple years after my graduation in 2007. In late 2009 I decided to leave CMD and start freelancing full-time. I currently work with some of Portland’s most prominent agencies, as well as a long list of independent clients and small businesses. Staying at the leading edge has always been important to me, and I do my best to keep up with the latest and greatest in this ever-changing industry.
