What I can do

I’ve been creating websites for over a decade. As a rare designer-developer hybrid, is that not only I can handle the graphical aspects of a project, but also I can fully understand and participate in the technical and business aspects of those projects. Design is not only making pretty things, but it's also problem-solving.

Web Design

I build beautiful websites that are fully responsive to all devices, crafted to your brand and your needs.

Web Development

I love bringing my designs to life in HTML, CSS & Javascript, also acting like a mad scientist. Each line of code was purposefully thought out and written to ensure that the site would be future friendly for browsers and devices.

UI/UX Design

Strategy, Scope, Information Architecture, Usability Test. I'm passionate about well-thought, easy to use digital product. I understand that our personal tastes are not more important than best practices in usability.

Graphic design

Create wireframes, prototypes, and graphic layouts including illustrations, logos, grid layouts, website wireframes, and photos.

Data analysis

Strategically analyze front-end and back-end eCommerce site usability and behavior pattern. Conducting various site audits and QA to increase conversion rates. Proficient in Tableau, Rapidminer software.

Skills and Tools

My mission is to help bring more beauty, creativity, and good ideas into the world and have the ability to empathize with end-users, and design solutions that improve productivity. Often, people ask me how I do things so quick on my computer. Anytime I find myself repeating a task, however big or small if I can shave even seconds off the time to do it, that saving multiplies with every repetition.
