About

I am a freelance web designer in Tucson, AZ. My work in the past has been with academic organizations, bands, and even private investigators. My philosophy is a combination of simplicity and clarity. Too many websites are bogged down with flash frippery, unnecessary animation, and incoherent organization. This occurs at the expense of accessibility, ease of use, and actually providing the information that users hope to gain from their visit. A site can and should be efficient and also aesthetically pleasing.
