About me —
Welcome and thanks for visiting! I'm a right-brain / left-brain digital artist out of Kansas City. For over two decades, I have enjoyed a fast-paced, professional career of designing layouts, graphics, illustrations, logos, html email, websites, social media collateral and user interfaces. I'm also right at home with VSCode using node npm, BEM CSS method with Sass stylesheet language, HTML5 markup, and no stranger to living in the Git and Angular CLI environment.
Feel free to reach out and say hello!
