With over ten years practicing photography, I have developed a unique and inspiring style. I
enjoy focussing most on portraiture and nude work, offering my subjects a very individual translation of expressive
light and shadow onto film. When I am behind the lens of a camera, time disappears and I become immersed in the
world I see through the lens. I have exhibited my works and done some contracted portraits for people. Check out all
of my photography.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Communication Design from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania and although my professional career has taken me into the Web world, I have completed
quite a few personal and student design pieces. Ranging from sewn tapestries and clothing to tattoos,
these projects can be viewed here.
Web Design and Usability
I have dedicated over five years in the web industry as an information architect, business/user analyst, visual designer and coder.
I assist clients in defining their online business objectives and how these goals translate into useful,
integrated tools and content for their users. I prepare site architecture and process flow documents
outlining the organization and hierarchy of the site, as well as each page, tool and interaction on the site.
I prepare guideline documents outlining all content that is to be placed into the site to assist clients in the
content production process. I have also created page designs for a number of web sites and applications,
translating the tools and content into a visual environment. For more information and technical proficiencies,

Clothing and Linen Design
I began sewing around the age of five, making outfits for my Barbie Dolls. I've come a long way since then,
turning my hobby into an enjoyable and lucrative skill. In the spring of 1997, I started the company "Dragonfly"
which included a line of handmade, one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories. View some of the promotional photos
I took for "Dragonfly" and check out examples of the clothing I create. I have recently taken
up the design and creation of unique linens including duvet covers, curtains and pillows. I have been contracted to create a
number of these pieces as well, which you can view within my sewn design projects.
