So, Who am I exactly?
I'm a very Versatile and talented Professional Designer, Developer and Creative strategist with solid foundations and competencies in Fine Art, Design, and Technology. I'm a born and raised East Coast girl, and even though I've lived in the Pacific Northwest for the last 11 years, I still maintain my Mid-Atlantic roots.
I'm a true "Jackie of All Trades", and my primary goal is to use what I know to help those who trust me to work with them. Design is always a collaboration, and part of my job is to make the process as easy to understand as possible.
I don't design for my ego, social media likes, or to impress anyone. I design because design is a foundation of everything we do, and I love to create things that are useful and fun. Sometimes the intent of a design gets lost in the process of it, and it becomes entirely self serving. That's not me.
Currently you can find me making cool things, trying my hand at writing, and doing cool projects for people all over the world.
