I am always seeking out and learning new technologies to better enhance the user experience. I tackle every project with gusto and ease, striving for each new project to be an improvement on the last.

I have done a mix over the course of my career. I have been a Webmaster in the natural products sector, marketer of Chicago’s Hotdog, “fireman” putting out fires at the last ad agency that I worked at and I worked at an online advertising “Dot Com” in the late 90’s.
I have created hundreds of webpages and websites over the course of my career. I am also a versatile IT-support person who can take apart PC’s & Mac’s and put them back together again. I am always evolving alongside technology. I am currently enrolled in a full stack web dev class.

Software Abilities: Adobe Creative Suite, (Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Indesign, After Effects, and Premier) Quark, Corel Draw 7, MS Office suite, Keynote, Final Cut Pro, and several audio visual tools. Keen ability to grasp new, technology, code, content management systems and software.
