Web Designer & Developer

ABOUT ME

Growing up I have always had a visual arts background and my passion for web design surfaced at a very young age. Throughout the years, I have acquired a breadth of experience in creating dynamic and user-friendly websites from concept to completion. I have designed and managed social media pages for both personal and business use. I have also been exploring photography and find myself particularly drawn to landscapes and portraiture.

Professionally, I have had the pleasure of working for large and well-known organizations within the retail, financial, and health care sectors while producing websites as a side hobby and business for the past 15 years. I am also an entrepreneur at heart and have found my experience of being a business owner to be invaluable.

Within the past year, I made the decision to apply to school again to pursue my passion for web design as a lifelong career. I have been accepted into the Graphic Design program at Fanshawe College and will be attending school in Fall 2017. I am very excited for the journey ahead and look forward to what the future has in store.

My motto:

I think it’s important to pursue your passions and I believe you can achieve absolutely anything you put your mind to. Having confidence and a clear vision of what you want in life is essential and it all starts with solidifying the relationship you have with yourself. With the right amount of focus and determination, you ultimately have the power to pursue your dreams, reach your goals, and become the person you want to be.


If you would like to get in touch with me about a project or proposal, or would simply like to say hello, I would love to hear from you!

SERVICES

Web Design & UX

First impressions are important and creativity is the centre of my work. I design websites that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Creating a strong online presence is crucial, but having a responsive website that is easily accessible from any device will make you stand out from the competition.

WordPress Installation

Content management systems are key drivers for digital success. They provide a great user experience, keep your website organized, and allow you to rank higher in search engines. WordPress is my go-to because of its customization capabilities and the stability, security, and ease of maintenance that it has to offer.

Web Hosting & Maintenance

With affordable website maintenance and hosting solutions, save yourself the hassle and let me manage your website so you can focus on growing your business.

Corporate Identity & Print Design

Logos, business cards, flyers, letterheads, banners, gift certificates — I do it all. Being consistent with your brand will help you increase your brand awareness and allow your name to have a lasting impact on your target audience.

Social Media Design

Social media has become a powerful marketing tool — it allows you to reach out to large audiences and drive traffic to your website. And in social settings, you should always look your best. I help individuals and companies effectively brand themselves through their social media channels to drive action from viewers.

Photography & Photo Editing

Need some new pics but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars to hire a Photographer? I’m your guy. With affordable options and a good eye behind the lens, I now offer photography services for personal or business use. Using image editing techniques in Adobe Photoshop, I will bring your photographs to life.
