I guide a project from start to finish-coordinating with clients and Daylight's design and development teams to gather and implement project details in order to meet deadlines. I've been told I'm lucky I found a job where my (polite) bossiness is an asset.

Senior Designer

Mocking up beautiful designs filled with bold colors and attractive type is what I do at Daylight. But before I start the digital process, I'm a researcher. Work with me and watch as I uncover project mysteries that transform good messages into compelling stories.

Web Developer

I've never been able to make a 3-D stereoscopic print come into view. I stare, I go cross-eyed, I try and relax. However, building complicated websites is different for me. Give me any design and I'll put it through my markup filter with focused results and make it work in all dimensions without the user having to strain.

Web Developer

I write code that deals with data. Pulling, twisting, shoving, manipulating data. That, and other things that need to happen in the back end to allow our front end developers to work their craft.
