"Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things."
- Ray Bradbury

About Me

I am a Phoenix born and raised website and graphic designer. I began experimenting with building websites and making graphics in Photoshop in the late '90s. I learned from design blogs, online tutorials, and trial-and-error.

Over time I continued to hone my skills to the point that in 2004 I felt confident taking on projects as a freelance designer. I got to work with a wide variety of clients including small businesses, real estate agents, a local writer, a political campaign, and more. This allowed me to gain valuable experience and practice many different design styles.

Since 2011, I have been working full-time as a website designer for the Professional Web Design team at Go Daddy. In my time there I have worked on new website builds and on a dedicated website updates team. This experience has allowed me to learn to work with a diverse team and gain a better understanding of how a large-scale design agency runs.

In my free time I like to hang out with my wife and daughter, write about local beer and hot wings, and collect hot sauce.
