What I do

What I deliver on projects, and why I deliver more than your average freelance designer

Website Design + Development

I have extensive experience building functional, informative websites for businesses and non-profits of all sizes.

User Experience Centric Websites

Where conversions are essential, user experience is key. I design user experiences that provide informative, unique experiences that are more likely to convert.

Animation

I use the cutting edge animation technology to animate images, vectors and page elements. From infographics to service explainers, any idea that you have is possible.

Search Engine Optimization

Building websites that can compete in industrial search terms is essential. I incorporate on-page optimization to ensure solid page-speed ranks and keyword visibility. Getting a return on your investment is my priority.

Around The Clock Support

My clients are kept updated and informed on their analytics and uptime. I ensure your online presence is secure and functional around the clock.

Mobile First Responsive Design

Mobile devices generate 48% of web traffic, neglecting or providing lesser offerings on smaller devices is harmful to your web presence. I design for mobile first, then allow the concepts to grow into larger devices.

About Me

How I got here, and how I work
I got started building websites in basic HTML and moved throughout school and university expanding my skillset into CSS and newer front-end web technologies. After graduating I took an internal position undertaking SEO focused development of commercial websites for a large agency, after 3 years internal agency experience I decided to start out on my own.Through my 7 years freelance experience I have been blessed to undertake exciting, challenging projects for local and global clients. Getting to see a project from conception to design to development and the journey to the end product has always been a fulfilling experience, and I wouldn't want to be doing anything else with my time.
I take a special interest in animations and working with vector graphics to guide the user's journey and attention through the website (also I think it looks really awesome) and consider it an area of speciality. 
As far as work flow goes, I work with Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator for graphics, HTML, CSS and JS for simple brochure websites incorporating a wordpress CMS, Chrome Dev Tools for debugging, and AngularJS, mongoDB, express and NodeJS for demanding webapps.
