I can provide and/or create case studies for particular projects of interest upon request. The intent of this iteration of my personal portfolio website is to act as an overview of the work I've done and the work I'm doing. As such, my goal is to present a general synopsis of my skill-set and experience so that interested parties can reach out to me to dive deeper into particular types of work or projects I've engaged in.
