CREATIVE direction 

If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it  ~Albert Einstein

What i do

My apologies to Mr. Sullivan, but I don’t believe form should follow function, I think they should go hand in hand and blend seamlessly. In order to do that, it is imperative that all teams work together to achieve the same goal. I have seen too many design, dev and copy-writing teams butt heads to the detriment of the project. I’m a bit of a team mediator, I like to work with everyone and find the best solution for the client and customer, while understanding the point of view from each team member. I was that kid who could jump from lunch table to lunch table and fit it, and that hasn’t changed.

From web-design & development, print, creative project management and direction, I’m your one stop shop.  I’ve been in the thick of it for over 14 years. I have learned a lot on my way and I apply that knowledge to every aspect of my job.

Project Management

Having dozens of projects going at one time, means knowing who is working on what (and who would be the best fit for that project), when they need to be done, and where each project is on its timeline, all at once. It lets me stretch super hero level multi-tasking muscles. Don’t worry, I’ll leave my cape at home.

Creative Direction

It is easy to miss something when you are staring a project for hours/days/weeks at a time.  Sometimes you are so focused on one part, you miss something else, that’s why having a second pair of eyes to review is vital.  I am a firm believer that all criticism must be constructive in order to help a designer create their best work. 

Design

I still like to get my hands dirty and keep my skills sharp.  Web design/development, branding, emails, graphics, print, UX design, presentations and much more, if I haven’t done it yet, I view it as an opportunity to learn and grow.  I’ve worked on luxury real estate, spa, online education, construction, tech, athletics and so much more.
