About

I’m currently the Web Interface Designer at Seton Hall University where my knowledge and experience in UI/UX is constantly growing with every new project since 2013.

From helping small mom and pop shops to high-end clients that have led me to designing a record breaking large lenticular wall for world renowned tattoo artist (Mario Barth) and now working in higher education!
