When I was younger, numerous hours were spent in the garage repurposing discarded scraps. I would put time and care into a new creation, giving it a second life. Since then, I have traded in the wood and metal scraps for a computer and the world of user experience. I don't see bad design, I see design that needs rejuvenation, love and elevation.
For the last few years I've been a freelance designer helping businesses and organizations build a stronger web and marketing presence. It's satisfying to help clients feel better about their business. I also volunteer with the non-profit organization WALL\THERAPY, which is an internationally recognized mural festival in Rochester, NY.
Design is malleable. The job is never done and that's the best part!
Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
