As a self-taught designer and programmer, I’ve experienced firsthand the power of self-directed learning and the importance of finding mentors to assist you along the way. I’ve worked as a freelancer, an in-house designer/programmer, and now for an agency that works with hundreds of clients all over the world, so no matter what position you’re in I can offer insight on how to achieve your goals. I can help you learn design or programming, advise you on searching for jobs and presenting yourself competitively, and with any quick design/programming problems you may run into.
