I am a multimedia designer with the powers of graphic design, illustration, photography, and web development. My studio is based in Baltimore, Maryland with my canine companion, Rusty. I have graduated from the University of Baltimore with a Bachelor's Degree in Corporate Communications and Master's Degree in Integrated Design.

Nerdcore Studio is the symbol and representation to empower the nerd lifestyle. The mission of the studio is establishing the nerd community through the power of art, design, entertainment, technology, and multimedia. It is my vision to bring the community together to support the alternative culture, stand up against bullying, and enrich the power of creativity. I am a nerd and I am not afraid to show my nerdy side!

The Nerdcore Formula

Research

The first stage is a handshake. The handshake is a significant moment to establish a solid, trustworthy relationship with my clients. It is the opportunity to identify the problem, gather the information, observe the environment, and ask the important questions: "Who?", "What?", "When?", "Where?", "Why?", and "How?".

Brainstorm

The second stage is mapping the ideas. The process of mind mapping conceptualizes from the main idea, search for keywords, and put the pieces together. Those pieces are the vital information that will target the problem, ascertain the approach, and determine the solution.

Design

The third stage is devising the plan of action. It is the integration of words and images to solve the problem, tell the story, stamp an impression, or create an experience. It is my responsibility to develop the design process and convey the message across the audience successfully.

Review

The fourth stage is evaluating the design. A design is not perfect; therefore, it is important to review the design with your client to analyze the details and receive constructive feedback.

Final

Lastly, it's time to implement the solution. The design will represent my client and illustrate their story to provide a powerful message or an unforgettable experience.
