BACKGROUND

“I’m a self taught hybrid designer, developer, and marketer with a passion for making a difference on the Internet. I have created a range of brands and startups for clients and myself. At the age of 11, I built my first online community. That experience sparked my interest in branding, programming, copywriting, marketing, video editing, blogging, and video game development.

600+ websites later — I’ve lead several small to medium sized teams (5-15) of creatives and I’ve held many titles in the web world: Art Director, Web Producer, Illustrator, UI Designer, Front-end Developer, and Project Manager to name a few.

My superpower? Since I have a keen understanding of programming, I’ve always had an excellent feel for User Experience. My skills really shine when I have an opportunity to create a new (online) product: Namestorming, Brand Persona and Product Design / Features are where I shine.

From within a team, I tend to have a natural way of motivating everybody to work together and accomplish our goals. I’m here to help you become successful, that’s why my tagline is, ‘Your Partner in Design’.”

– Sincerely, AGW
