It really is a bold statement, but I have the experience and knowledge to back it up. With my education background in design and business, I am in a great position to help businesses decide on the right solutions for their digital products and then execute it!
I am a firm believer in understanding the human element of design and knowing your audience. Your user wants to have a great experience with your brand – from start to finish – and I want to make that happen.
As a small business owner, I feel that it is important to share my business and design experience with students from Hyper Island. It was there that I received my design education and matured as a designer focused on simple user-focused design. It also gives me a peek into the minds of younger designers who are part of a quickly changing design environment. This keeps me current with what works today and what will work even better tomorrow!
Also, it’s important for me to put “my money where my mouth is.” The companies that I respect (and end up watching closely) are those that value their customer enough to create great user experiences. I regularly invest 50% of my company’s profit into their companies to make sure they can keep doing good work. Turns out, there is strong evidence that say investing in a great user experience results in great profits. As much as I am confident I will get a good return on my investment, I also know that I can be part of their success.
I have the best wife in the world that supports me through all things. She has always been by my side, encouraging me and without her, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do.
People have said that I have an unhealthy love of travel, hotels, fine clothes, coffee, and great hamburgers.
I have to agree.
We also have an amazing dog, Meta, that is loyally by my side every day as I work on projects. She’s a big part in my life, always there and offering silent critique of what I’m doing. Meta even occasionally deletes my work, which is usually a sign that I’m going in the wrong direction.
Here’s what a couple of clients say about working with me.
