|First things first... I'm
not really a "master" of puppies... In fact,
the only puppies I have trained are my own two dogs (in obedience, flyball, agility and frisbee). I'm actually more of a dog cheerleader than a dog master—I believe that dog/people training should be positive and fun.
However, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to own this domain, since I also happen to be a Metallica fan who likes the
song "Master of Puppets". As far as I'm concerned, "masterofpuppies.com" is perfect for me.|
I'm currently freelancing as a Web & Creative Designer and living in Madison, Wisconsin. I am looking for a full time, employee position as a Creative Designer (web, graphics or multimedia) primarily in the Midwest (Madison, Milwaukee or Chicago). I am willing to relocate for the right company/position.
My style of design is very user-friendly and usability-focused, as I am always designing with the audience(s) in mind. I do not intend on continuing to accept new freelance design projects when I start working full time, as I would rather focus my energy (career-wise) into the company where I am hired. I believe the work/life balance is very important and reflects in the work that a person does.
My experience includes web design, project management, email design , user interface design,
analytics, multimedia, web-based training, usability testing, and instructing the "Introduction to Web Design" course for 4 semesters at UW-Milwaukee. Want more details? Find out more about my work experience and/or related experience, as well as my nun chuck skills (graphic, above). View my resume (pdf) for additional details about my experience and qualifications.
My portfolio includes a sampling of projects I have worked on (concepting, designing, developing, maintaining, etc.), both corporate and freelance. On Page 1, you'll find work samples for the larger, more recent projects that I have worked on, whereas on Page 2, you'll find print design, freelance projects, company identity, logo design and other miscellaneous work examples.
