// ABOUT

A bit about me,

I have a background in web development, graphic design and game design. I create interfaces for web and mobile projects for 19 IDEAS, their clients, and freelance clients as well. I’ve worked a variety of complex projects such as single-handedly developing a unique board game with hand-drawn illustrations, boxes and mechanics down to simple teaser landing pages and more…

I originally grew up in Binghamton, NY and now live and work in Buffalo, NY’s Elmwood Village.
