Front End Development & UX Design
Writing in CSS & HTML has always been a hobby of mine– creating websites, in general, has been something I’ve done in the background. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I was able to contribute my code to a project by Science and Arts Engagement NY. The project titled Dunk! The Science of Basketball is an online exhibition where I was able to build an identity program to brand the website and write CSS stylesheets and SVG elements that were integrated into the final build.

The site uses a number of elements as overlaying windows, it was important that this was reactive to screen size, and content would adjust accordingly.
Graphic Design & Motion Media
During the 2018 U.S. Midterm elections I got involved with a grassroots congressional campaign and had the opportunity to re-brand the entirety of the campaign’s look. Through trial and error I developed a visual style for all our communication on web, video, billboards, social media graphics, and in print.
Heading a small team, I wrote, produced, and art directed a motion media series to add another way for our campaign to have visually engaging content.
When I was new to learning CSS, Adobe XD was a solid learning resource to try out UI design ideas.
Orthographics & Line Art
Line art is the type of work that got me into doing concept art in the first place. It was the first time that I had success creating a digital drawing, which opened up a new world of possibilities. Most of these drawings are from the real life patent for the “Hoverboard EOS”, which was a type of miniature hovercraft a friend of mine built. In order to register the patent and help in the 3D printing, the board required a series of views, both external and internal. Working to make sure these were proportionally correct took extra care.
This hoverboard has been floating around online for some years. I also created a Kickstarter video for this that went viral for all the wrong reasons.
