I'm a developer and designer with a passion for problem-solving. I enjoy finding creative, elegant solutions across a wide variety of platforms, and working with innovative, cross-functional teams. Nothing inspires me more than learning new things, and seeing new ideas come into fruition.

I'm as passionate about writing clean, simple code as I am about creating clean, simple designs. Every project has its own unique needs, but my personal aesthetic is all about designing with purpose - in both the code I write and the graphics I create.
