A hybrid that can do it all
I am a graphic designer & front-end development professional experienced in bold creative thinking, collaborative environments, tight deadlines, steep learning curves, and drinking copious amounts of coffee. While there are many people who can program, very few have any grasp of design at all leaving their projects looking unfinished or unpolished. With my graphic design education and my “self-taught, learn the hard way” programming knowledge, I have a one up on my competition in building projects that look great both on the visual side, as well as the coding side.
Since the beginning of my career I have been focused on graphic design and front-end development, however these days I have gained a true love for UX/UI mobile design. The process of cramming a lot of data into a small area of space (mobile viewport), while maintaining the simplicity and understanding of that data and minimizing the amount navigational taps gives me a “Nerd-On”. I am keen on joining any team that deals in both front-end development and mobile design as the industry keeps moving in that direction.
If you choose to hire me, you will truly gain a dedicated employee. I am currently only looking for freelance projects. I have a registered corporation called ToggleRight Inc, for easy contract dealings.
