Mobile + Graphic + Web Design

All About Me

I am a Mobile + Graphic + Web Designer with over 8 years of experience. I feel design is like a jigsaw puzzle pulling all the elements together (Concept, Design, Function & Usability) to make a cohesive finished whole.

Experience

I gained invaluable experience at AIMS, Inc. by designing wireframe & mockup designs for an Android app, designing, coding and updating websites for various AIMS,Inc. owned businesses utilizing HTM-HTML5, CSS-CSS3, Jquery, and some JavaScript in a ASP.NET Framework.

Previous experience included updating product information on an e-commerce website with over 200,000 products, email newsletters and new promotional web banners at TVI Supply.

At Leapers, Inc. I was in charge of the introduction of new products by updating the website, sending email newsletters, creating copy , instructions in manuals, and many other marketing efforts. In addition, I take on projects as a freelancer in web design and print.

Education

After earning a Bachelors of Science in General Management at Oakland University, I felt something was missing. I needed to tap into the creative side of myself. I was able to achieve that through Design.

I obtained a good foundation in the field by earning an Associate’s Degree in Computer Graphic Technology with a concentration in Web Design at Schoolcraft College.

I was invited to join the honor societies at both colleges, Golden Key National Honor Society at Oakland University and Omicron Iota Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society at Schoolcraft College.

The combination of the two degrees together gives a good blend of both business and design.
