About me


In the late 1990s, I taught myself Linux, PHP, and HTML before seguing into Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, CSS, Flash, and Javascript. Encouraged by enough of my friends who saw my potential to be a tabloid photo compositor, I surrounded myself with talented professionals, finessing my abilities into something respectable with coursework through the University of California, Santa Barbara’s Graphic Design & Visual Communication Professional Certificate Program.

I have since developed, designed and maintained web sites and print publications at UCSB, and have served as a member of UCSB’s Web Standards Group. I have consulted on projects for logo design and web design, and have led training workshops in content management, database management, and social media practices.

I earned a B.A. (honors) in Anthropology (Cultural Emphasis) from UCSB, and have an A.A. (honors ) in both Cultural Anthropology and Liberal Studies. I am a current member of The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA).

Since I was a kid, I have tended to color within the lines, but only after I would redraw them where I wanted them to be..

My favorite color is green, closely followed by orange.
