TALKIN' ABOUT YOURSELF AIN'T EASY
I’m a designer who codes. Everyday I’m a creative person. Every other day I’m a technical person. I care about the color of pixels on screens and I’m attentive to semantic code. I play with admin areas for websites and find ways to make them better for others that need to administer things, too. My day job requirements fit me well managing the imagery and functionality of an e-commerce website through a platform that that does better with a few creative tweaks. Much of the design and development work that employs my daytime hours is spent communicating. I’ve come to learn that it’s one of the most valuable design tools in my toolbox. It saves countless hours of unnecessary work and sets realistic expectations for teams of people.
Outside of the things I do regularly for money, I stay focused on creative and technical things. I guess it’s who I am. Family and home keep me happy and occupied. Writing music and designing sounds keep me inspired. I record and produce music using Apple’s Logic Pro X and Propellerhead’s Reason. They each have their place in the style of music and sound that I produce and there are some articles in my blog that go into this. I play keyboards, acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin and a slew of percussion instruments.
Here are some pictures that I've taken, and some music that I've written.
just… ya know, don't be a creeper.
