I'm a multi-disciplinary designer and developer with 18 years of experience. My hometown is Santa Clara, the heart of Silicon Valley, where I live and work. My little office is literally surrounded by industry giants, where I remember used to be orchards.
I've worked for startups, agencies, and ran a group of designers and programmers as an Interactive Director for 11 years before I decided to branch off on my own. It's hard to choose which I prefer, so I actually enjoy the variety of challenges working with multiple clients provides.
With my broad skill set and refined approach, I am as comfortable writing code as I am with the creative process. I've spent equal parts throughout my career cultivating both my artistic and technical capabilities. I believe this is unique and can make me an exceptional fit for organizations and projects that can leverage this.
Some organizations often integrate me into their marketing departments as a specialized resource. I sometimes work on-site and also in a white label capacity. This seems to work well with groups that need ongoing help but don't have the need or budget for a full-time or long-term designer/developer.
Small businesses with little to no marketing groups seem to appreciate the breadth of services I can offer as a single person. This saves them from having to contract an expensive agency or multiple vendors to get their business goals met.
I also commonly work on specific limited-scope projects, and sometimes brought into specialized teams for one-off projects. I have an extensive network myself, so sometimes I'm the one putting together the team. I'm super flexible and can adapt to your organization or needs.
