I make the Web look good and work well.
I'm prepped with 16 years in advertising with a primary focus in UX, Web design and development with roots in accountable data. I have a keen eye for interaction design with a foundation built on standards-compliant Web code. I just love making effective, accountable Web experiences.
I am an active member of the design, web development and social media team for a vitamin and supplement manufacturer in Coquitlam, BC, Canada.
I am a member of a four person, independent, web consultation team currently on a contract to work for a non-disclosed nutraceutical company. Tasks include:
I shifted gears into the role of strategist and manager. Notable clients include Estée Lauder, Tripwire, Johnny Carson and Kimberly-Clark.
Jack-of-all-trades Web technician and artist for Vonage, Sonny & Cher, Invisalign and Bill Cosby.
Since 2002, I ran my own one-man shop, but focused solely on it from June '06 to October '08.
I cut my teeth on Web design and development back in the days of table-based layouts, Dreamweaver and inline styles. We’ve come a long way since then!
I handled large-format printing, lamination, drum scanning and layered CMYK film press matches for high-end magazines and other printed materials.
Named after my professional mantra, Function then Form is a place where I catalog my observations, learnings and reports on the topics of Web design, development and user experience. Just another WordPress blog, but it sure is pretty. Click here to visit the blog.
Sure, it may sound corny, but joining and eventually running this club has done wonders for my ability to present work, run a meeting and speak off-the-cuff while in a professional setting.
I interned under Ken Bischof, CEO of Spit'n Image, a digital and large-format printing shop where I worked on trade show booth assembly and CMYK press matching.
