ABOUT

I am a web architect and graphic designer living in Colorado. Art has always been a passion of mine and I was introduced to computers at a young age. Naturally, the two came together in the form of graphic design and evolved into web design and development. Having worked for both large corporations and small businesses in addition to freelancing, I am comfortable working on any type of project. In addition to graphic and website design/developement, I have experience in marketing, promotions, DJ'ing & music production.
