HTML? Are you for real?

Yes, for real.

I have a strong foundation in visual communication, user-centered design methodologies, front-end development, content marketing, and inbound marketing.

I also have a professional art practice and background in speculative and critical design, interactive installation design, tactical media, and video production.

I often use processes from UX and marketing in my art practice, and vise versa. This has led to some fun and unexpected projects, such as this interactive tour of an art criticism website that ends in a sweepstakes.
