Combining my skills in the art of design and the art of programming, I bridge the gap between graphic design and technical implementation.
On my latest project, I am the creative lead on a team of local and offshore developers building a new social media network centered on volunteerism. Set to launch in late 2017 the website will allow users to track their achievements, connect with like-minded individuals, provide a channel to offer help, and guide those in need of support.
