General Information

With more than 15 years of professional and personal experience in interactive marketing and digital design, I am experienced in a wide range of disciplines including graphic and web design, user experience design, project and account management, interactive strategy, email marketing, digital photography, and WordPress customizations. I’ve been designing and coding websites of my own since 2000, and working professionally in traditional and interactive marketing since 2002.

Since 2007, my career has focused on the design and delivery of complex websites for relationship-based businesses, consumer-focused digital product promotion,  enterprise applications, and personalized content hubs. I enjoy solving problems that make use of all the hats I’ve worn throughout my career, helping provide clients with a perspective that fuses embraceable technology, meaningful communication, and purposeful design. I’m in my element whether working closely with visual designers and developers, project and account managers, and most importantly, clients who entrust me to guide them through the million-and-one decisions we will make together to complete a project successfully.

Beyond my working life, I keep busy with photography, making music and recording, cycling, collecting records, and being a dad to two great little kids.
