Web Developer + Photographer based in Boston, MA

ABOUT

divider1

I am a full-stack web developer and photographer with experience in advertising, marketing, web development, creative direction & producing, branding, and UI/UX. Languages I’ve primarily worked with are Ruby on Rails and PHP, and I am adept with content management systems like WordPress.

I have a particular passion for front-end web development. My grid framework of choice is Bourbon Neat, although I’m skilled with both Bootstrap and Foundation.  I also utilize tools such as JavaScript libraries like jQuery and React, preprocessor libraries for CSS like SASS, and automation tools like Webpack, Node.js, and Gulp. I believe each colleague and client offers me an opportunity to learn and improve the way I work. I love taking projects from conception to completion and bringing innovative and efficient creations to life, and I’m inspired by those that do the same.

PHOTOGRAPHY

divider1

I am a photographer with experience in architecture, headshots & portraiture, marketing imagery, and event photography. I spent 4 years cultivating a successful foundation in the photography industry in Los Angeles before making a move to the East coast. I have worked for Milk Studios in Los Angeles, was mentored by commercial photographers Blake Little and Michael Indresano, and learned the business side of the craft assisting production companies Stardust Visions and Kadota Productions on shoots for clients such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Banana Republic, IFC, and Harper Collins.

I always work hard to make a connection with those I shoot and tell a story with my photographs. I am extremely humbled to be sharing my passion for photography with others and aim to meet and exceed my clients’ needs each and every time.
