About

I'm a website designer and front-end developer currently based in Atlanta, GA. I began as a self-taught coder and graphic designer, and spent several years being "The Grad Student Who Can Code" or "The Intern Who Knows Photoshop" before working as a developer full-time.

I've always had a good eye for color and a good brain for puzzles, and I enjoy combining the two to create beautiful, thoughtful, functional websites.

Because I developed my skills on the job in non-profit organizations, I also gained firsthand experience with many of the other disciplines that influence an organization's web strategy: Marketing, Public Relations, Fund Development, Event Coordination, and Community Outreach.
