I am the UI Design Instructor at The Iron Yard in Raleigh, and have a master’s degree in interactive media from the UNC School of Media and Journalism, where I was a Roy H. Park Fellow.
Before moving to North Carolina, I was a freelance photographer in New York City, telling stories of muddy music festivals, dance-party weddings, hardworking single-fathers and everything in between (check out more recent projects here, here, and here).
While I still pick up my camera from time to time, today I spend most of my time telling stories through a different medium- welding lines of code with clean design to create dynamic, engaging and easy to use web-based projects.
I am passionate about finding the right solution for the specific problem at hand, and am not afraid of innovation or trying something new. My favorite projects are the kind where I get to work with all types of people to make something amazing.
While I know my way around front end development and love working with code, I share an equal love for user interface and experience design.
My process is simple and I love brainstorming over beers.
