It’s what I’m doing now! With hundreds of web sites under my belt, each one gets better and more efficient, (if I do say so myself). I’m so happy to have found a career that I truly enjoy. Embryo Design is just me, a freelance web developer, designer and programmer.

My specialties include e-commerce, WordPress, Divi theme, WooCommerce, Zen Cart, search engine optimization, mobile optimization, user friendly interfaces, and eye catching graphics and layout. I pay attention to detail and try to anticipate issues before they arise.

The lead on projects such as implementing new shopping cart, adding certifications online, integrating automated DVD ordering, e-marketing campaigns, and much more.

Title: Assistant Art Director
11/1/1997 – 8/1/99

I wouldn’t trade my experience here for anything. This is where I learned my design skills in everything from print to packaging to advertisements to web site design. Thanks to IPI, I have 2 retail packages on the shelf, quite a few advertisements that ran in major computer trade magazines, a DVD package, and much more. IPI had 5 companies under its umbrella and I was responsible for the imagery for all of them. It was hectic at times but never dull.

Primary Responsibilities: Computer Graphics and Designs for the web and print, including:advertisements for major magazines, package design, merchandise design, software interface design, software beta testing and responsible for overseeing a group of 4 other designers.

Other Responsibilities: Manufacturer and Vendor Relations, Customer Service, Trade Show Sales, Office Management, Network File Manager, Production Coordinator

Fun Stuff: It was my pleasure to have been able to work at two Comdex trade shows in Las Vegas and Chicago and another at the Javitz Center in New York City.  I also had the opportunity to fly to Amsterdam, Holland for 3 days to deliver a bundle of DVD’s, that was hard to pass up. My greatest pleasure was my 5 weeks spent in Oxford, England with a dear friend to help conceive and design a DVD interface for a rock and roll documentary series.
