O.G.

Designer. Developer. Teacher.

Background

Since high school I have been designing and developing logos, branding, websites, apparel, flyers, brochures, and more.

February 2010 I started freelancing to gain experience as an Information Architect. Now I have enjoy working with schools, churches, entrepreneurs, events, non-profits and companies of all sizes. Giving them exactly what they need when it comes to research, analysis, design and front-end development. I've worked alone, tag-teamed with other entrepreneuers and worked on small to large sized multi-disciplinary teams.

Education

While attending The Savannah College of Art and Design I majored in Industrial Design minored in Interaction Design taking classes in human computer interaction, information architecture, perceptual and cognitive human factors and contextual research methods.

I continue to refine my design skills, and front-end languages based on popular demand and project needs like HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, jQuery, and JavaScript. I endeavor to learn how to define KPIs and use them to improve on-going projects along using Google Analytics.

Community

Here in Columbus I am a mentor to a few teens and young adults helping them to pursue their dreams. I have a soft-spot for teens in foster care and hope to join FCCS' College Bound Mentory Program sometime this fall.

And for two years I have gave back to the New York City community volunteering my time to teach high school students how to code in front-end languages: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, APIs, and Twitter Bootstrap framework, with the non-profit ScriptEd.

I have also volunteered on MVMNT's Design Team since 2014 creating graphics, flyers, social media posts, apparel, etc for their services and events. With a team of six other designers.
