Side projects

I have created wedding websites for family friends using SquareSpace. I also freelanced PR with a men's fashion, Deux Hommes. Hoping to build my "side projects" by helping you!

Ideal team

I love working with smaller teams that encourage brainstorming and welcome new ideas. While I appreciate direction & follow ups, micro-managing is not enjoyable. As a contracted hire, I assume the client trusts that I will be committed to the project.
