I'm a professional Web Designer, game and tech enthusiast in the greater Seattle area

I’m a web designer and front-end developer: I care about how well a website looks and performs across all screens and devices. My current role as a Web Designer at a web hosting company in the greater Seattle area put me in a unique position to learn about web servers and network technology. Optimizing web pages to be as fast as possible is a bit like trying to beat a high-score in video games, which you’ll find me playing in my free time!
