DESIGN⋅CODE⋅DESIGN

Hello and welcome! This is my online portfolio where I showcase everything I do professionally. I have been working in an IT Helpdesk position for over 8 years, but that's not all I do. My one-of-a-kind job role has allowed me to branch into other types of work including graphic design, photography and web development. I like doing them all and I strive to make the best work I can. My variety of skill sets makes me a very versatile person to have in a team. They are also tools for a specific goal that I care about deeply: to solve business problems and improve people's experience at work.

But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.

Liam Neeson from the movie - Taken(2008)

OK, maybe not the nightmare part. I have to include this quote because I love that movie and I absolutely love Liam! Let's go back on topic... My thirst for ideas and my ability to learn are probably my most valuable assets in my line of work. As a tech person, I frequently check out the latest technologies and gadgets. As a designer, I follow design blogs and study the works of other graphic and web designers. I regularly collect fonts, photos and graphics from all over the web not because I can use them at work, I just enjoy admiring them. :)

You can find out more about me and my work below. Let's work together!
