Hey there! I’m a web designer and developer in Omaha, NE.

I have over 3 years experience in building responsive websites for clients in various industries. I have experience with every stage of the site building process including research and planning stages, design, development, testing and launch, plus the maintenance afterward. An enthusiast of branding and user-focused design, I love executing those ideas on the web.


As a web designer…

I create user-centered designs that focus on their interaction and usability. Each project begins with exploring the client’s needs, then creating sitemaps, wireframes, and initial concepting. I’ve found Adobe Illustrator to be my favorite tool for designing digitally, and I’m experienced in using Adobe Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Muse, Experience Design and Sketch.

Web Design Projects

As a web developer…

I build sites with clean code, taking browser or device limitations, SEO, and usability into consideration every step of the way. I have a solid understanding of HTML, CSS, Sass, PHP, JQuery and technical SEO best practices. I enjoy building sites with the WordPress content management system, and have experience with Expression Engine and Concrete 5.

Web Development Projects


Combined with my development skills, I have a deep understanding of responsive design practices. I have experience designing sites for clients in various industries including healthcare, architectural, insurance, city government, technology and non-profit. In addition to websites, I am skilled at branding and logo design, print design, landing pages and email campaigns. I have experience in working directly with clients, managing projects and collaborating with team members for outcome for clients.

I’m currently working as a Front-End Web Designer at bluespace creative in Denison, IA. Previous experience includes Antidote 71 in Omaha and Sioux City, IA as their Web Developer and Designer and Whitespace Creative in North Sioux City as a Graphic Designer. I attended Morningside College in Sioux City where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design with a minor in Advertising.

In my free time, I’m most passionate about professional wrestling – as represented by my tweets over the last two years. I play video games (Overwatch, currently), listen to music (Queens of the Stone Age is my go-to) and read a book here or there (most recently Daniel Bryan’s autubiography — there’s a trend, I know).

I am actively seeking opportunities to utilize my passion and talent for web design and development to create compelling and effective work. I’m looking for a collaborative environment that provides opportunities to add to my skillset. Check out my full resume, and reach out if you’d like to talk!
