Director of Web Design & Communications Services

As a web developer and digital designer, I contribute to many aspects of Amherst’s digital presence—from web design and content strategy to promotional graphics and more. 

Working with the Web Services team in IT, I specialize in CSS and UI/UX design. For departments, I provide a variety of web support, including assistance with visual design, content flow, usability, accessibility, and search engine optimization. Additionally, I build custom WordPress sites (see The Common and Hidden Drives). With a background in graphic design and illustration, I can also create graphics for your department or project. 

Contact me with requests related to College websites, graphics, or Amherst’s Visual Identity Toolkit.
