I have studied and worked in the design field for more than 10 years and have a trained eye for good design. From a young age through painting and sketching and on to photography, graphic design and visual arts, I have been developing my skills. I have worked as an art director for a world renowned ergonomics firm and my clients have included an internationally renowned sports agent, a famous HDR photographer, an airline and other entrepreneurs and businesses. I design and implement web sites, custom eBook templates, e-commerce stores and more. I have built up my design knowledge through constant studying, research, experimentation and reviews.
I have spent years honing my skills to come up with beautiful and unique designs time after time, much to the praise of my clients. Now I am making those skills and making them available to help small business owners and entrepreneurs make their company and brand stand out in a sea of competition.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have been born in such an amazing time. With technology and the global connection of the internet, I have had the pleasure of working with clients all over the world. Currently I have happy customers in 17 cities in 7 different countries across 4 continents around the world.

Products I Use
A lot of my clients and other designers just starting out have asked what types of software I use so I thought I’d share some of it here.
Adobe Photoshop CS5
I use photoshop to create new graphics, edit pictures, mock up products and more. This is a very powerful tool that allows you to make anything you can think of in your mind on the computer screen, but also takes a while to learn and get used to. I have been using it for more than 8 years and I still feel like a beginner with it as there is so much more I could learn about it and still am everyday.
If you are looking for a little more user friendly tool and plan on being a professional designer anytime soon, I recommend checking out Photoshop Elements. It has many of the more common tools used to edit photos and some creation tools as well and is less than $100.
Hype is a very easy to learn tool that allows for the creation of HTML 5 websites or intro pages. I personally am not a big fan of intro pages, but when clients feel like they need them, Hype can deliver beautiful results without using Adobe Flash with I am also not a fan of at all. You can also use Hype to create stunning interactive websites complete with motions, fades, and transitions all with a basic knowledge of HTML code.
Wordpress is an awesome free application for organizing website content such as text, pages, blog posts and images. It is the backbone of this site as well as most of the sites I build.
