My Bio and Professional Resume

I am a Canadian Web Design & Development/Graphic Design Professional with strategic SEO knowledge living in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada, specializing in creating websites that my clients can manage and update independently without knowledge of HTML & CSS.

I live for and love my passion for creative design

Code is like art - This gives the web infinite possibilities. My web coding skills are current, utilizing semantic HTML5, CSS3 & Javascript to build beautiful responsive websites. Meaning my sites look great on desktops, tablets, and mobile.

How I got here

I've been designing online for about thirteen years and developing now for nine years. Coming from a twenty year extensive background in Graphic Design, I have a strong understanding of how to use design to communicate effectively. Eager to continue learning—I went back to school in 2011 to upgrade my skill set, and I am now a Front-End Web Designer & Developer. I'm particularly passionate about UX & UI (User Experience and User Interface). I can also support the back end development behind a React application.

How I roll

I skillfully work with clients to determine their needs and produce creative, stylish, and engaging sites within budget and time constraints.
