It's like this.

My website consists of this page, and this page alone. Just a guy in a room with a computer and a head full of ideas shouldn't need a site map to prove he can write, design, build a better mousetrap, or fill a job opening. One page ought to be enough for anybody to get a conversation rolling.

The ability to grasp the spirit and intent of an enterprise, then distill it into a successful icon, is what distinguishes a designer from a talentless hack. It’s truly rewarding to have a client consider the logo you've created for them and say, “Yeah, that's definitely us.”  I’ve heard it dozens of times, and it never gets old.

Being asked to steward a brand is high praise. One client so valued the website I redesigned for them, they hired me for several firsts, including a marketing video and multimedia presentation. In the process, I had the opportunity to manage a group of talented individuals who filled in the gaps of my own technical knowledge. It’s flattering to have fans who trust your creative instincts, but even more reassuring to know a competent and complementary team’s got your back.

Two retirement brochures for the fashion industry. One focused on choosing a plan based on lifestyle, while the other emphasized the long term impact of financial planning.

There’s no doubt in my mind: the medium of video is infinitely engaging, and the Internet can be very useful when put to good use. But for my money, nothing beats out the sheer visceral rush I get from pulling a fresh proof off press. The critical eye learns to mistrust ephemeral pixels on a screen; print it, and it becomes reality.

I got the chance to suss out my “Internet=Useful” theory by creating a web application that plots a user’s contact database on a world map, thus helping them to visualize their global reach. Directing an Eastern European production team via email and IM, we created a functional demo in just ten weeks. I’ll say it again: “Useful, that Internet.”

A little background on yours truly.

No devil in my details, here’s my C.V. My experience is deep and varied, and my references are clients and colleagues who await your call with rave reviews. Together with the brief examples above, these should give you a sense of where my talents lie, and whether you’d be interested in looking at more of my work. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
