I design, write, and illustrate for the web and children's books.

I'm an interactive designer and web developer at truematter.

In my career I've worked as a web designer, a customer support specialist, and an art and photography director. Get the full details on my LinkedIn profile.

I've written two books about Squarespace to help others create their own websites. Currently, I'm writing and illustrating my first children's books.

I'm happily married with two incredible kids and two dogs. I geek out over anything related to Apple, comic books, and Star Wars.

Oh, and I want to build my own R2-D2.

I work for truematter as a UX/UI designer and front-end web developer. View my work at truematter.


I'm actively involved in my local design community.
