Working in ecommerce has given a wealth of knowledge in photography. Wheather photographing apparel, or setting up for a model shoot, understanding how to capture a moment is key to the digital age.
With almost 10 years of experience in conceptualizing and designing for web, results are seen with exceptional UX/UI, supported by a strong foundation of hand coding HTML and CSS.
To feel a piece that has been printed, is a true passion. Magazine ads to large format printed wall clings, experience has built upon years of designing for rock posters to multiple Super Bowls.
Before I began my career, I grew up taking art classes from elementary to high school and on to working for my dad's print company. During college, I took a photography internship at the fast pace environment of Dr Jays, churning out product for web while being fast and as perfect as could be before photoshopping it for the web.
Making my way from marketing into more web and design, I had started back at Academy of Art University to further my education in web and new media. Meanwhile, San Diego radio stations gave me opporunities to explore design with festivals and concert promotions.
With the downturn of an economy, I found myself working with 24Seven agency to get my foot in the doors of places like Quiksilver and Reef where I enjoyed the surfer culture and all the art that came with the positions. I began production on a new campaign from Reef, while coding flash for Quiksilver lookbooks and their website.
Falling in love with the Sports Action Industry, I planted my feet with Alpinestars. The company gave me opportunities from photographing to web design.
Finding my way back to music led me to Live Nation Entertainment working for Ticketmaster. It's made me a complete designer and brought me so many opportunities that I'm so grateful. I've become an experienced UX/UI designer and have found a passion working with the NFL.
I graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelors Degree in communication with an emphasis in advertising. After a year, I decided to go back for my passion in art at Academy of Art University (San Francisco) where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Web Design and New Media. I'm always expanding my knowledge and searching for new and better ways to create a better web experience. If you feel like I can be a great fit for you or your company, please contact me. I also love instagram, and add designs to it often.
