I am a seasoned Chicago-based web designer and front-end web developer skilled in HTML, CSS, UX/UI and the Adobe Creative Suite as well as CMS platforms including WordPress and Squarespace. I also have extensive experience in graphic design, branding and digital strategy which makes me a unique creative and technical resource. I am equally comfortable in the trenches with InDesign, Sketch, Invision and HTML/CSS, or developing a comprehensive digital strategy to help your business grow.
I have worked extensively in the corporate environment as a Creative Director and am now principal at RKING INTERACTIVE where I provide both design (web/UXUI) and marketing strategy services.
I am a geek at heart and love science (and science fiction) and technology in all forms. This passion has lead me to many clients in the medical, pharma, and start-up tech industries. I am an avid reader, write science fiction and create websites that encourage and advocate science education. I also design geeky science and technology t-shirts as a way to further advocate science education.
Delivering high-impact solutions across all media takes experience. My extensive background in a variety of fields (web, technology, marketing/branding) and working environments (agency, in-house, indy contractor) has provided me a unique blend of creative, technical, and marketing skill sets. I build client relationships that are defined by attentive, timely service and providing smart, long-standing solutions.
Bottom line…my job is to make your life easier. That’s what I do. And I enjoy doing it.
