About me

An industrious and adaptable designer-developer-tinkerer, with a keen eye for detail and a passion for problem solving.

I have a solid background in design, and a technical head too. I’m open to projects ranging from UX/UI design to a full developmental build of a site from spec, when you’re in need of a front-end developer with a designer’s eye.

I’m a big advocate of prototyping and designing in the browser - I’m intrigued by the intersection of design and engineering and I’m always striving to bridge that gap between disciplines.

Rockin’ Stickers

Identity, Web, Commerce

Based in Oregon US, Rockin’ Stickers started in a small garage back in 2013 and has since grown to become the go-to sticker printing company for artists, designers and businesses, providing custom vinyl stickers, decals and more.

I led the re-design and front-end build following a UX audit of the previous site, with a particular focus on improving ordering and checkout flow and to encourage repeat customers.
