It all started with a camera actually. I picked up a camera and thought "I want to go to art school"! So I did. Oddly enough, while studying for my bachelor's in fine arts I became increasingly interested in design. I stayed up 'till the wee hours of the night practicing design and making art.
a designer i was
Hard work paid off - before having my degree, not only was I a conceptual fine artist, I was a salaried designer for a firm in Denver. Time passed and I made my way to be a senior web designer.
Over the years I have worked at a number of the well known firms in the Denver/Boulder region - gaining experience and knowledge as a developer. Check out my resume site for more info on which firms.
I decided I wanted to be a small one man shop, so I gracefully left the firm. Twenty-four hours later I had my first two clients.
freelancer i am
Today, I am an established freelancer, with the experience of a designer or developer from a firm. I wouldn't trade my position or my freelance business for anything.
