Welcome

About Me

I am the Slayer of Bad Design and Hero of the Ad World. I have reigned victorious in the halls of Outdoor Advertising as well as all levels of traditional print and web design. I have sampled the fabled life of the video game industry from humbled beginnings as a QA Tester to emerge like a great Phoenix as a UI Artist. My thirst for knowledge grows stronger and will not stop even after every man, woman and child has graced my work.

My Skills

Some of my specialties include creative direction, print design, web design, production management, outdoor advertising, marketing, UI/UX and software quality assurance. Check out my UI/UX work demos below from the 007 Quantum of Solace video game.
