📅 I'm currently taking on new projects for late spring 🌷 and summer 🌞 2016.
My favorite kind of project is highly collaborative and process-oriented: asking you questions to help articulate your audiences and goals; drawing out the stories behind your work; sketching out a structure and form that communicates effectively; and building you a website that is solid, reader-friendly, and easy to maintain.
Though I do a lot of website building, I'm a generalist capable of working across disciplines to see a great project through almost anything.
