About Me

I remember first teaching myself how to build websites in high school, only using books (pre-YouTube, remember that?). It was the perfect blend of nerd and creativity. I didn't consider myself only an artist nor only an engineer. I was a mix of both. And that's what I've enjoyed most about growing as a designer through the years: the constant tension between aesthetic and effectiveness.
