I solve problems.
Hello, my name is Stuart Neiman. This is my website.
I started drawing at the age of four. And have not really stopped since. Now I do more than just draw. I paint and sculpt as well. Most of my drawings are figurative in nature. Take away the figure and my designs become very geometric, following a formal grid is the norm.
I am traditionally trained in the fine arts (BFA in painting) but I also have a MS with an emphasis on Web Design. But the artistic side is the easier of the two for me.
My strengths are my grit and creativity. I solve problems for my boss or client. I create systems or improve current systems so there is a profit for the client. The profit comes from making money or saving money.
I have been working in the digital world for twenty years now. I have had many positions from web master, instructor, multi media designer, instructional designer and currently programmer.
My current work in 2016 has me working with the LMS, Moodle and I find I am now starting to do more development working specifically with different Java Script libraries like angular and react.
A new adventure means new things to learn and explore. I wouldn't have it any other way.
