My Professional experience has a very broad range of specialties. I have strong experience in e-Commerce of all types. Providing solutions to common coding mistakes, I set up and configure CMS databases, tweak designs, customize style sheets, and back up essential data. Overall, I strive to optimize the web experience for both client and end user.

As an art director/graphic designer and web developer with 12+ years of experience, I’ve worked in a variety of environments: from self-motivated freelance and small design studios to in-house design departments and full-service agencies. Whether I’m working one-on-one with clients and vendors or collaborating with other department heads, I challenge myself to achieve the best possible results. I’ve handled a wide range of projects, including strategic marketing, identity and branding, environmental graphics, e-Commerce, social media (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter) and web design.

From e-commerce and web design to audio loop creation and formatting. My work history is solid, reliable and dependable. If you are interested in selling downloadable media, tickets for events or your personal arts and crafts. I can provide you with the expertise of a big company in a small personal one on one relations with out big cost. If you are looking for designs, art work , logo’s for website, T-shirts, album art or wall hangings I can do that also. whether it is web design, blogging video editing, audio production and formatting, I can do it.
