About me

I love to make and organize things. I’ve been designing and building websites since elementary school and have always tried to push the boundaries of what I can do with markup. Offline, I enjoy knitting, garage sales, science documentaries, and cheering for the San Fransisco Giants.

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, went to college in Ohio, lived abroad in Australia, took my first job in NYC, and have landed in the beautiful city of San Diego.

Working together

Maybe you're a small business looking for a site redesign or an agency needing to bulk up for a specific project. My prolific work experience in web and digital media has taught me a wide variety of skills and has prepared me for many different roles on a project. I'm able to take on both short-term and long-term work, either as part of a team or on my own. If you'd like to meet up in person, I live in San Diego and make regular visits to Chicago, San Francisco, and Phoenix.

For me, the best part about freelancing is meeting new people and working on interesting and different projects. I'd love to hear what your needs are and see if I'm the best fit for the job—or if someone I know is!
