Define Design

Simply put, I am a designer, trained as an artist. As an artist and designer, my work stems from my roots. Through a variety of design venues, including photography, graphic design and illustration, I express a personal narrative to all who experience my work. These narratives focus on family, culture and community. In short, I create work for people, about people.











My Services

I offer a wide range of services, below are the ones I am currently featuring. If you are interested in a service not listed, please send me an email or contact me by phone with your request and I'll see what I can do. If I cannot help you, I can offer a reference to someone who can.

Illustration & Painting

Perhaps you see the perfect gift on my site. If not, send me a photo and I can create a custom image or illustration for you.

Front End Web Design

From designing and generating wireframes of your concept to creating prototype mock-ups and working code ready to be deployed to your server, I can help you make your ideas a reality.

Photography

I specialize in event photography, macros, engagements, weddings, portraits, objects for presentation, and pets.

Why Choose Me

Good craft is imperative in quality design. When I deliver a project to a customer, they can expect organized source files, an easy-to-navigate file structure, and above all, exactly what they asked for.

As an experienced designer, I know that spending time on revisions and multiple iterations is just as important as coming up with an initial layout. I deliver my projects "piece-meal" so you have time to consider the design and request changes. I certainly won't waste your time.

You'll never find yourself thinking of me as one of those "Artsy Folks." I aim to come up with quality design options without the cluttered vocabulary of "designer speak".
