Summary

I have been a Freelance Web & Graphic Designer, working independently since 2010. I have been working primarily with Wordpress, building websites for solo entrepreneurs in the holistic healing arts - such as Massage Therapists, Acupuncturists, Yoga Teachers, Yoga Studios, Musicians and Artists. I also do print design; I've created CD packaging, Business Cards, and Flyers for dozens of projects. I love creativity, beauty, aesthetics, design and anything that engages viewers with a sense of awe.

I'm particularly inspired by sexy Responsive web design, dynamic textures, yoga, sans-serif fonts, compassion, geometric patterns, indigenous textiles, minimalism, good organization, & clean websites.

Intention

Since I have nothing to lose, I may as well be completely honest & authentic. I haven't worked a regular job since 2002. I have been completely self-employed, as both a freelance web & graphic designer and as a bodyworker for 13 years. I'm considering this strange idea of getting "a real job" because I've been frustrated and disillusioned with a lot of things in my life, regarding my work... And I think that I have a lot of learning & growing edges to overcome, in order to be a better artist & entrepreneur. I would love to work in a team and take on projects that challenge me to grow, learn and evolve... and to take the skills I already have developed to the next level.
