Professional Experience

Served as RTD’s web designer. Designed and maintained the organization's website, front-end applications (NextRide, Trip Planner, Schedules, and Facilities), and public information displays. Developed UI/UX based on what would provide the user with the best possible experience. Led efforts to ensure compliance with WCAG 2.0 AA web accessibility standards.

In charge of designing, developing, and maintaining a large variety of digital media and web technologies. If a client could dream it, it would be my job to find a way to build or fix it. Gained vast experience of working within budgets and meeting deadlines.

I stopped freelancing mid 2014. It was fascinating being my own boss. Owning a project from conception to completion and making a lot of happy clients/friends along the way. My specialties included web design and front-end development, with a strong background in print design, branding and identity design.

Worked with clients both in and outside of the university, utilizing the entire design process. Branding, identity, websites, posters, post cards, and promotional material.

Produced custom logos, edited the layout of student handbooks and other various corporate materials. Trained to use commercial grade printers to deliver final product. Worked primarily with Adobe Illustrator and Acrobat.
