A bit too early for the web revolution, Cynder found a home in print design with some of the big names in print — CapCities/ABC, Jefferson Smurffit, Knight-Ridder, and McClatchy. He honed skill in visual design, color, and developed many burgeoning graphic designers along the way. As the print industry contracted, Cynder found himself at a cross road and reinvented his skill in web development, earning a bachelor degree at DeVry University. Cynder has a real passion for process, visual identity, and creating experiences that are individually crafted for each client. #CraftCMS #twig #php #html #css

A Gen-Xer of a certain persuasion, I'm equally at home with classic rock, dance anthem, and big country riffs. I'm always down for a good sound ... here are some of my favorites:
• Depeche Mode
• The Cure
• Sam Smith
• The Weeknd
