I am a 24-year-old visual artist and writer. I graduated from Saint Joseph's University, in May 2017, with a Digital Media/English double major. My work is concerned with making the ordinary, extraordinary. My senior thesis, a memoir, focused on my childhood and college experiences. Having been inspired by Post-Modernist authors, I tend to speak of trauma with a blunt honesty. My traditional photography searches for visually appealing elements in nature. As a filmmaker, I hold the same values. My subjects are often incredibly simplistic; however, they come to life in post-editing. I incorporate intense visuals and jarring audio. Sound design receives most of my attention; I utilize programs such as Adobe Audition, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Adobe After Effects. As a designer, I have created websites and content for many different non-profit and profit businesses. Currently, web and graphic design has consumed the majority of my time. I am able to draw logos digitally, utilizing programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. To see examples of my work, check out my resume below.

As a freelance web designer, I primarily work with local small businesses. Our nation’s identity was built by small businesses and they should not be forgotten in this digital age. I never try to alter a business’ identity, instead I highlight its greatest assets in my designs. A website should never diminish a company’s image. Instead, it should display its greatest qualities like a portfolio.
Below are a list of sites I designed & maintain for different businesses:
