11 years experience crafting immersive experiences on the web and beyond

As a creative developer with a background in design, I’m interested in highlighting the creative component of technology to enhance people’s understanding of both. I combine technology with thoughtful design to create immersive digital experiences that take on a physical dimension and drive a compelling narrative.
