HOBBIES
Being a geek

I’ve been a web-designer & software developer for 8 years. I’ve worked on everything from interactive web brand showcases, to hybrid mobile applications, to logo and pamphlet design work, as well as video, photo and audio editing. I’m not only a consumer of technology but a lover of technology. I live and breathe front-end web development and design. Let me be your geek 🙂

PROCESS

My process with any project is pretty straight-forward but absolutely essential in getting any work done. You can't just wing it - you need an orientation to follow, and this is mine
