These days your web site needs to be more than just an online brochure. We can show you how to make your web site part of a complete marketing and communications platform.
We design interfaces and experiences that help users find what they need and act on that information. Regardless of the complexity of the application we can help improve it.
The use of Content and Digital Asset Management is changing the way business creates and shares information. We work with multiple platforms as well as our own custom tools.
The beauty of all this technology is the ability to track, record and report on anything and everything. Custom dashboards make understanding that information more intuitive.

Having started out setting lead type on a letterpress in high school and working my way through traditional graphic arts processes up to the digital techniques used today I believe that I bring a unique perspective to the digital projects I’m involved with.
Here are a few projects I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of over the last few years as both a freelance designer/developer or as the director of a team of digital professionals on either the client or agency side of the project.
In some cases the designs have been updated but the basic layout/structure/information architecture I developed remains. This is just a small sample of the work I’ve done – for more information feel free to contact me.

I built my first website in 1993 after working as a graphic designer with the team that went on to start Netscape Communications – the world’s first commercial web browser – back when it was still called Mosiac. I still have a floppy disk with the beta and a hack for using it with AOL.
Since then I have spent the majority of my professional career designing and developing websites, on-line applications, mobile interfaces and all forms of interactive communications channels for the advertising, automotive, healthcare and software industries.
In the last few years I have worked at Strive Creative as Front End Developer and most recently at RIIS LLC as a contractor assigned to Verizon NBI as a UI/UX and product development consultant focusing on designing cutting edge technology for the next generation of IoT devices.
