With over 15 years behind the camera, my journey in photography has been a dynamic exploration of many styles. From crafting captivating headshots and products to capturing the essence of lifestyles, products, and editorial stories, I've honed my skills across diverse genres. Each image I create is fueled by a deep passion for the craft. Below, you'll find examples of my work, credited to efforts with X-Agency and BECK Digital.


My design journey began in high school, crafting tee shirts for a screen printing company. Professionally, I've seamlessly continued this passion as an art director and designer. With joy and passion, I love uncovering a brand's voice and boosting it with captivating visuals. Below is a snapshot of my work – designs conceived individually or collaboratively with talented teams. Each piece is a testament to my dedication to impactful design. Work is credited to X-Agency.

Over the past 5 years, I've sharpened another tool in my belt that I love: the world of web development. My speciality is building custom websites while integrating the Wordpress CMS platform. Serving in roles such as Senior Interactive Developer and Interactive Director, I've strived to merge both the creative and development worlds in a unique way.

In addition to my proficiency in web design, I excel in writing high-quality HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and PHP code that require minimal rework, ensuring optimal performance and scalability. I specialize in building, updating, and maintaining custom themes and plugins within the WordPress ecosystem. My approach is empathetic, prioritizing client relationships and understanding their pain points and desired outcomes. As a technical leader, I also have experience in guiding cross-functional teams, advocating for solutions that adhere to best practices in front-end development, accessibility, browser compatibility, and SEO.

Throughout this journey, I've had the opportunity to build some truly remarkable pieces for amazing brands, which you can explore below, credited to X-Agency.
