From an early age, I have always been interested in how things worked. I took apart countless toys, studied everything with inquisitive eyes, and had a great imagination. Today, I find that my attention to detail has become my greatest strength in all of my work.
I got involved in design shortly after getting into high school. I went to a technical high school where I found interest in the field of Computer Information Technology (CIT). I studied concepts throughout high school including Microsoft Office applications, public speaking, accounting, and basic web design. Though primitive at the time, my skills quickly improved as I worked with industry-standard programs and started to teach myself how to do things that my classmates didn’t even think of doing. In addition, my senior project, which was a state-of-the-art web site at the time, yielded a perfect score and further influenced my decision to pursue my passion for web and graphic design.
Currently, I am a junior at Fitchburg State University going for my bachelors degree in Communications Media with concentrations in Interactive Media and Graphic Design.
My ultimate goal with my work will be to design products that millions of people will use on a day-to-day basis. Aesthetics on a web site can be as beautiful as anything that is printed, and I’ve set out to prove that.
I am extremely proud of my work and for how much I've already accomplished. Each piece below features links to both screenshots and the full interactive projects. More projects will be added as I work further.
My high school senior project, a full-featured Flash-based tutorial system that introduces the user to important tools in Adobe Photoshop and Flash in order to build a complete web site from scratch. Over 180+ hours of work committed.
