I was born in the US, educated in England, and am now based in San Francisco, CA where I am currently working as a freelance designer & front-end developer. I have an interest in business, emerging markets, technology, design, gemmology, and I have a perennial appreciation for beautiful and well-done things.
I am the founder of Teaman & Company which was founded in London and now based in San Francisco. We specialise in remarkable, ethical jewellery & museum-quality gemstones. Teaman & Company brings ethically sourced high-end jewelry and gemstones online, solving the inventory and trust problems that restrict the accessibility of remarkable, unique pieces.
I studied BA (Honours) Design Communication at the University of the Arts London, earned my FGA from the Gemmological Association of Great Britain and I was the 2013 Scholarship recipient from the Gemological Institute of America where I'm completing my Diamond Grading Degree.
My professional experiences span across a variety of fields, and I am always looking for new projects and entrepreneurial endeavours. Please contact me if you're interested in working with me!

Clients can choose from a series of stock image backgrounds for their title page, or they can provide their own images. Clients are responsible for purchasing their own hosting and domain, but Magnifi.me does offer an assistance serivce to help clients set up their site.
