OCCUPATION

UI DESIGNER/DEVELOPER

BORN IN

LAKENHEATH, ENGLAND

LIVES NOW IN

ATLANTA, GA

Graphic designer, web developer, UI lover, wife, mother, and novice snorkler. I suppose those words all describe me. I graduated with a Honors Degree in Computer Information Systems in 2005 and have been gaining experience in technical, creative, and lead roles since then.

I always aim to add creativity and uniformity, whether designing for print or the screen, or personal or corporate projects. I bring my personality into projects as well as easily conforming to other design standards. Read my recommendations on Linkedin if you'd like some others' points of view on working with me and in interactive setting.

I'd like to think I am a social and blogging guru, but I am often so busy coding I just don't have the time to be a socially involved in my own page as I'd like - but that doesn't mean I don't do if for my clients. I manage over 5 Facebook Business pages for clients, as well as Twitter and Youtube accounts.

When I am away from my computer (which is rarely) I enjoy reciting planets with my 4 year-old son or helping my 12 year old daughter with her jewelry business.

Life is good.
