I specialize in branding and social media marketing. Assist clients with their web presence and help drive website traffic based around their goals. Currently working on UX/UI...more projects with startups for websites and iOS applications. Wearer of all hats, coding in my free time and traveling the world while networking with other location independent entrepreneurs. Seeker of internet cafes and great co-working spaces
UX / UI Designer, Identity Designer, Adobe Photoshop CS6, Xcode 6, Apple Keynote · Worked with founder to design a clean interface that is easy for… · More users to navigate and create their own music communities while tapping into new music.
Have learned a lot about the music industry and the current demands in the digital space. Users need a way to contribute directly to the artists they love and the people themselves should have a voice when it comes to what music is being shared.
Am a part of marketing strategy and brand voice development as well as designing the experience and user interface.
Why Are We Doing This?
- We want to transform the music industry and let artists get paid for their work. - We want to create a system in which we let the public be the A&R's of music and be rewarded for finding the best music before others do. The earlier you support hit songs the more reputation you get. (Not at all like the bureaucracy of record labels) - We want artists be the owners of their music. (Be supported by fans so they don't have to give away their music copyrights to monopolized corporations) - Let the game be more fair for everyone.

What was the most impactful class you took in school?
