I completed my undergraduate degree in Interaction Design at Simon Fraser University, School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) in 2007. Since then I have been professionally designing websites, combining my background in Interaction Design (IXD) with my front–end development experience. In addition to my degree at Simon Fraser University, I have also gained five years’ experience supporting multiple companies and users within a Multisite environment.
I am a strong advocate for Responsive Web Design (RWD) and a firm believer in frameworks such as Bootstrap, which I have utilized on this site, to accelerate the overall process of web design. To watch RWD in action, drag your browser window to increase/decrease the page width!

I have previously worked with local musician Sam Alviar to incorporate, along with his already existing graphical elements, a responsive solution for smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers. Within the website, animation is used to direct the visitor of the page towards a variety of information on the artist in a fun and interactive manner. The grey shaded area indicates the “page fold”.
