"Providing, meaning to a mass of unrelated needs, ideas, words and pictures"

“Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.”
- Jeffrey Zeldman -
“What separates design from art is that design is meant to be… functional.”
- Cameron Moll -
Serving in the military taught me many things about myself and effective leadership. It has very little to do with just “being the boss.” Set an example of excellence, develop a successful engaged team, and invest in individual mentorship.
Design has been my passion since the first "fundamentals of design" course I took seven years ago. Since then I have continued to pursue several paths including: interior design and architecture, graphic design, and web design.
I had used a lot of software, but learning html code felt like unlocking the secret language of the universe!
…well, at least the internet. And now I was able to translate design work into useful products with interesting user interaction capabilities.
I advocate for the usefulness aspect as a priority in a design, and speak tech and design, so can serve as a Rosetta Stone, of sorts, between the two for projects.
