About Me

Just a brief introduction about me

Michael C. Pachler

Graphic/Visual Designer & Wordpress Developer

A life-long technology and visual creative with experience in traditional graphic design, product development, web design, and photography based in Annapolis, Maryland. Heavily influenced by the maritime setting of the Chesapeake Bay, I've spent much of my creative time working, playing, and enjoying a coastal lifestyle with the surroundings playing a big role in my work and artistic pursuits - evidenced by the all-original photographs included in this site.

Currently, I serve as a digital/visual designer and web (Wordpress) developer for a SaaS education-technology company providing critical skills and courses to learners of all ages. On a daily basis,  I am responsible for the design, collaboration, and development of creative projects/web sites for partners, event initiatives, and corporate branded digital projects.
