I have created websites for clients using HTML5, CSS3 and javaScript / jQuery, and a variety of print materials including: posters, brochures, postcards, clothing designs, large backdrops and more.

I have a B.F.A. from The School of Visual Arts and a Web Development with Open Standards certificate from Baruch College.
