Hey,

Graphic Designer & web developer

01

about

I’m a millennial and this is my story. Starting young, at age 7, all I wanted for Christmas was a computer. By age 9, I was building html websites in Dreamweaver. At age 11 I started a dog-washing business, where I paid my friends to wash dogs in the neighborhood, and collected a percentage of their earnings. At age 16 I founded Enlighteneer Corporation, an education-focused tutoring company centered on SAT and AP exam preparation, incorporated in the State of California. When I was 18 I attended Drexel University as a business and marketing major. 

Fast forward several years, and I’ve worked as managing editor of an independent newspaper, graphic designer and director of operations for a multi-million dollar restaurant corporation, and most recently I founded Design Over Matter, a Limited Liability Company located in Santa Barbara, California focused on providing affordable graphic design, web design, and social media management services to local businesses in the Santa Barbara and surrounding communities.

About Me

I founded Design Over Matter, LLC with initial prospects of developing a foothold in the restaurant and hospitality graphic design needs, an area I am extremely well versed in, having served as Managing Editor of my college newspaper for two years, coupled with years of additional photography and graphic design training in several states across the country.

Most recently, and for seven years, I served in various Director and Management capacities at a multi-million dollar restaurant business. During this time I oversaw many of their graphic design and social media management projects, as well as personally re-designed their website on three separate occasions throughout my employment. In the final months I oversaw over 100 employees.

Designing websites and managing social media campaigns are as much a passion and hobby for me as it is becoming a career.
