Hello! As a creative professional web developer, designer, illustrator, and motion artist in the NYC metro area, I feel lucky to do what I love with a unique blend of design and code. I find the fast-paced realm of web technologies exciting and enjoy learning new tools and techniques. When not working, I paint, read, hike, travel, and spend precious moments with my wonderful family.
