ABOUT SECTION

Hello, my name is Stuart Neiman. And I solve problems. 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 an 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 the webmaster, instructor, multimedia designer, instructional designer, programmer and UX Designer/Developer. Always a new adventure to adapt, improvize and learn from. I wouldn't have it any other way. Stuart Neiman
