Q: What made you decide to become a web designer?
I’ve been hanging out with computers since I was 5 or 6 years old and was always interested in the Internet. To me, it was a place where anyone could do anything and I wanted to be a part of that. Next thing you know, I started to become a pretty decent web designer.
Q: What is your favorite part about working at Higher Images?
My favorite part about working at Higher Images are the people I get to talk to and interact with everyday. They’re a swell group 😉
Q: what keeps you engaged when working on new exciting projects?
With every project, I try to push myself to do something that I haven’t done before. Whether that’s incorporating a new technique I’ve learned about or developing something to make my workflow easier, I try to learn with every new project.
Q: What are your favorite types of projects to work on?
My favorite types of projects are the ones that appear simple but actually have complicated bits running behind the scenes. It’s a nice challenge and also satisfying to be able to create something that works with a lot of moving pieces.
Q: What do you do for fun, outside of the office?
Outside of the office I like to write and make movies, play music, and play ultimate Frisbee.
Q: What did you want to be when you were a kid? I wanted to be a pirate, for example.
I went through several phases. At one point I wanted to be a fireman because I think all boys wanted to be firemen at that moment. I wanted to be an astronaut for the longest time. Space is awesome. However, I still don’t know what I want to be if I grow up.
Q: Besides creating awesome stuff for your clients, if you had to pick another super-power what would it be?
Flying would be amazing. I would pick the ability to control time but I’ve seen too many movies where that goes awry to know better.
Q: What are some recent learning convention/conferences you attended?
I most recently attended the Web Design Day conference in June. It was an amazing experience, and I am grateful that I was able to go and learn about aspects of web design that are easy to forget about when you’re so focused on, well, web design.
