Clean, Simple, Functional Design.

With over 19 years of design, development and usability experience, I've learned that clean, simple, design yields the best results. Keeping the customer in mind is always my top priority. Helping you keep your customers in mind is paramount.

Clean, Simple, Functional Design

What I do

I make the design process for your project easy and efficient. While keeping your customer in mind, I complete your project to deadline and to budget.

What I expect

With communication and planning, I complete projects faster than firms and agencies. I'm looking for a partnership to make a great product.

What we achieve

A project that meets not only your needs, but your customers' needs. A project with a clean, simple style that doesn't look dated in six months.


I not only have design and development experience, but also business experience. With both aspects, I create better products. I can work within budget and time constraints without a diva attitude.

Description: With over 13 years of ecommerce experience, I have been involved in many design and functional projects. I was the lead for web functionality and product development at two companies. I drove changes to primary conversion areas on sites, such as the product page, shop cart, checkout, baby registry and a mobile site. Many of the changes I wrote the functional specifications as well as coded and designed most of the frontend ui elements. Past project examples are, but not limited to: checkout redesign, shopcart redesign, product page redesign, baby registry in-house integration and design, as well as several Magento upgrades and module installations. In addition, I have crafted site category structure and implemented or maintained many third-party systems. Usability testing and user-focused design practices have been something I try to implement at every company I work at and every project I take on. My most recent project was a full site redesign where I took PSD files from a designer and coded the entire implementation.
