Need custom writing, editing, social media managing or consultation for your sites/mobile apps? I’ve done it all! Contact me and see how I can help your brand.

WEBSITES

I believe in clean, simple, beautiful & responsive design for websites that look good on any device — with enough motion and interactivity to keep visitors interested, but without becoming too overwhelming with bells and whistles where it impacts the user experience.   Beyond just a cool-looking website, I can also offer photography, writing, marketing, web hosting, and social media managing as part of a full web package. Whether it’s a simple one-page resumé site, an online store/workshop, or a full-fledged social network, I’m perfect for any small to medium web project you may have.

A small sample of some of my web projects can be seen below.

BIO

I am known for many things: My NYC mobile street photography, my dozen years in the comic-book industry, my chai addiction, and most recently for building websites. I grew up surrounded by the film industry, studied theatre and journalism in school, and was obsessed about comics — so I tend to draw upon all of those mediums in my photography and web projects, concentrating on storytelling, emotion, character, and the human condition. Two projects I worked on in comics won Eisner Awards (the “Oscars” of comics), and my mobile photography has been featured in many magazines (both print and online) and photo exhibitions all over the world (including Berlin, San Francisco, New York, and Atlanta). My current goal is to create an amazing online presence for each client that makes them smile.

I can be quite determined when I set my mind on something: I broke my back in an accident over half my life ago, but I proved my doctors wrong after they told me I’d be confined to a wheelchair forever — and to this day, I use forearm crutches to walk. I discovered the joys of photography when I realized the enormous freedom that my iPhone gave me while taking pictures, despite my disability — and I became a huge supporter of the movement, writing about mobile photography for the DPR Connect site, and co-teaching (with Sion Fullana) online courses about it (which you can find more info about at the Mobile Photo Workshop site). I’ve also been hired to shoot events, and as a consultant for mobile photo apps. Building websites is my current passion, so please check out some of my projects above!

ALWAYS GOING ABOVE AND BEYOND

I’ve worked with Anton on several web projects now, and I can honestly say he’s the best designer.  Having worked with a multitude of other designers in the past, including large corporations, and none of them come can come close to Anton’s work and passion.  He truly cares and puts everything he has in every project.  Always going above and beyond, I can’t recommend him enough!

My anxiety soon turned to excitement with each sneak peek before the big reveal! I couldn’t be happier with Anton’s great design sense and attention to detail!”

PHOTOGRAPHY

My New York City street photography (taken entirely with various iPhones) has always been a quiet, personal hobby for me. But somehow, along the way, I have gained almost 90k followers on Instagram, been published multiple times and exhibited in various shows (including a solo exhibition at the Haus of Hipstamatic), been hired to shoot multiple events with just my phone, and have been invited to be a featured guest (twice) at Apple Stores. I also co-founded the Mobile Photo Workshops with my husband, Sion Fullana. I still consider my photography a hobby…but don’t let that stop you from hiring me!
