About Me

Why the title “Digital Craftsman”?

I could be called any of a dozen things depending on who you’re talking to, but I landed on digital craftsman. A true craftsman has a devotion to quality and obsesses over the details. They enjoy the process as much as the final product. They take pride in crafting things that are both beautiful and functional. These are the qualities that I strive for in my digital work.

What I do

The title is cute and all but I’m sure you want me to get to specifically what my skillsets are.

  • UI design for websites, apps, and emails.
  • Asset creation. Whether that be illustrations, animations, videos or imagery.
  • Some basic ux design like user journeys, wireframes and sitemaps.
  • Custom HTML, CSS, and basic javascript and PHP. My CMS of choice is Wordpress but I’m  currently digging more into Craft.

I currently work as a digital designer for Blue Flame Thinking, an awesome Grand Rapids based advertising agency. I am also taking on work on the side so email me if you think I can help you out.

Who I am

I love what I do for a living so even when I’m not technically working, I am usually thinking about design and looking for inspiration. I especially enjoy hand lettered typography, flat illustration/animation and data visualization. I also spend my free time woodworking and carving which, come to think of it, is probably where the craftsman idea originated.
