My name is Scott. I'm a web developer and digital artist.

I'm an ambitious technical professional with a keen eye for design. Coming from a visual arts background, and possessing a technical mind allows me to really focus on functionality, efficiency, and best practices in regards to website and design and development while keeping in mind the overall scope of the project, as well as the overall end user experience. Strong critical thinking, analytical skills, and attention to detail have combined to help me create highly functional and visually appealing end products.

Design Skills

My background comes from the visual arts. Attention to detail is critical. I've always loved to draw and sketch things, and eventually made the transition into Graphic Design. I've always had a strong eye for color combinations as well. Working in the graphic arts field has allowed me to hone these skills. I'm always analyzing the aesthetics of things, with a keen eye for design; because even the most functional websites need to look good.
