You could say I've been “designing” since preschool! I would bring home drawings and when my mother asked what it was a picture of, I would explain, “It’s a design!” I majored in Art in high school, where I first fell in love with branding and graphic design, and then explored many different majors in college throughout the years, including Mass Communications and Business. In 2001, I started moderating forums and hosting online chat rooms for an internet radio station. I really enjoyed connecting with people all over the world and helping build a strong online community. In 2005, I went back to school to learn web design and development at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division. After a year and a half of very intense training, I graduated with the highest honors from their Web Design Diploma program.
In 2007, I started a web design/development and graphic design business: Definitive Digital Design, LLC. I have helped many clients with very different types of businesses connect with their specific target audiences both online and off. I’ve worked on many different types of sites. From small hobby sites and blogs to a large corporate site with an international presence, and everything in between!
I also enjoy expanding my skill set and learning new things to help you grow your business. I continue to take classes on topics such as Search Engine Optimization, Web Site Promotion, Content Writing for Web, and Legal Issues for Webmasters and Content Managers and more. I have earned the Web Business Certificate from International Webmasters Association, Advanced SEO Certification, and am an Inbound Marketing Certified Professional.
With my training in screen design, usability, web development, SEO/SEM, social media, graphic design, and much more, I have the talent and experience to exceed your expectations.
