Creative Consultant

Making good things less boring. Freelance, contract, or special teams.

Working

I have over a decade of experience in web design and development, working with both large corporations and lean startups. I manage projects from strategy and IA all the way through to development and support, pulling in outside specialists as needed.

I’m schooled in visual communications, trained in Lean UX and agile development, and fascinated by the culture-changing power of the web. Let’s make the world a better place!
