Taught and nurtured at a young age.

To understand, build, and create, to design and enjoy as art.

I first created flyers for local bands, artwork for t-shirts and a few CD layouts in the late '90s. If Adobe made it (or Macromedia at the time), I wanted to learn how to use the software. I have done my best to try and stay at the forefront of development, art, and design as it has evolved in the nearly 20 years of working in the industry. Now I have worked on 1000's different projects from print to the web. So many it would be impossible to list them all. Nonetheless, I am proud of the work I have done for the many clients and people I have worked with through the years.

The evolution from designer to online marketer.

In the past few years, I focused my time and education to the continued evolution of SEO, SEM, and social media marketing. With a few businesses to consumer and business to business clients, I have been able to identify strategies that have successfully worked. The understanding of a web visitor's journey is fascinating to me, how I can help drive traffic to websites, to offices, help garnish new sales and leads.

What do I do in my free time?

In my spare time, I enjoy gaming and building things. Whether It is woodworking, 3d modeling/printing or the building a flying of mini quads or as many know them as drones.
