As a former textile designer, I’ve developed a strong sense of color and design that is easily applied to the web. Having used Adobe programs for the past 10 years, I love playing with textures while creating subtle, impactful designs. Combining my eye for detail and my knowledge of current standards in CSS + HTML, I enjoy creating new experiences for the web. Specialties: Web Design, Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesign/Fireworks, Responsive Design, Edge Reflow, Foundation Framework, Wireframing, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, HTML email design/coding, Wordpress, Drupal, Production
