I'm a multimedia designer, inventor in the virtual world!

... and I'm surrounded by pixels!!!

What I Do.


I've heard people say I "work with computers" many times. That true, but a multimedia designer better describes what I do. I'm disciplined with many mediums including graphic design, UI design, video production, animation, and web design. A jack of all trades... and master of all!

I'm available for freelance projectsI'm available for freelance projects, but my day job is working as a senior user interface designer and analyst for an electronic medical software company called Amkai.

Who I Am.


"An artist" is what my 8 year-old self would say whenever someone asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. They'd usually laugh. Most of the time I drew cartoons by hand, but we also had an early PC with Windows 3.1 and Paintbrush. Ah, the good ole days of MS-DOS.

I grew up in a techological household. We always had the latest computers and video cameras, at a time when digital graphics was becoming popular. As a result I became interested in electronics as well as art, which set the stage for what I wanted to study in college.

Bachelor's in Electronic Media, Arts, and CommunicationI graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2009 with a Bachelor's in Electronic Media, Arts, and Communication. RPI nurtured creativity through technology, and I gained extensive knowledge of multimedia theory and software.
