About Me

I am currently not actively looking for work and not spending too much time keeping this website up to date. I do accept freelance work from time to time. I will consider freelance projects if it seems like it would be a good addition to my portfolio or the pay rate is really good. Check out my portfolio.

My experience includes, web design and production, WordPress development, document production and management, presentation graphics, digital imaging, print production, and signage, as well as PA and admin. work in Film/Video. I am also a life-long musician and have been training Capoeira (Brazilian Martial Art) for 3 years.

I am currently on the web standards team at Oracle USA, Inc. working on their public web properties. You can view some of the work I’ve done for these companies in the portfolio section. I stay current by attending various groups devoted to Web Standards, Photoshop, and WordPress Development.
