Don’t pick a path and work at it until you’ve “arrived.” Be a lifelong learner on a path with many detours.

Hello, I’m a Designer/Developer/Project Manager from Irvine, CA. I work with teams of individuals to deliver amazing online experiences through UI/UX design, media distribution and WordPress Development.

I recently founded Outsourced Strategy, and work at PlainJoe Studios as an Account Manager. I spend most of my time working with amazing clients on things like: Digital strategy, WordPress implementation, social media, email marketing, live streaming, media distribution, podcasting, SEO and analytics/reporting.
