I am a web designer living in Raleigh, North Carolina, with Julie (my wife), Charlotte (our dog) and Iris (our cat). I grew up in the "sticks" of central Pennsylvania (near Penn State), moved to Michigan (MSU) and then to Raleigh (NCSU) to be with my wife…apparently we have an affinity for land-grant colleges. I work remotely with Blohm Creative Partners (BCP) located in East Lansing, MI.
My formal education is in print design. Over the past 5 years, my focus has transitioned to web design and I have never looked back. I believe a good designer is a good designer and that tools are tools. I spend many hours beyond the 40-hour work week reading, studying and constantly pushing myself to get better. I take in as many resources as I can to draw inspiration from. I like being competitive with my colleagues to put that little bit of extra energy and polish in every project. Above all else, I don't want to stand still.
While at Blohm Creative Partners, I have helped develop the web department. I was an integral part in developing a content-gathering process, an information architecture process, and hiring (if necessary) outside developers. My daily responsibilities include: estimating, designing wireframes, designing comps, developing markup and incorporating sites into content management systems such as MODx, Drupal, Expression Engine and WordPress. I also have experience working alongside development teams to implement designs and markup into various systems.
