I’m currently a Creative Director for Ascender.
I help people solve problems and explore new ideas for the web and beyond.
Search for the bigger picture. Consider context. Think diversely.
Work the Problem
Define the problem(s). Define the goal(s). Create solutions.
I’ve provided design, strategy, and development since 2002, supporting clients from a variety of industries, including real estate, healthcare, tech startups, entertainment, the arts, non-profit, and education. My approach to projects is simple: define the problem(s), define the goal(s), then explore solutions.
On any given workday, I may be found: creating a prototype for a web app, designing a brand package, writing marketing copy, designing a landing page, writing code, or outlining a marketing strategy (among other things).
When I’m not working, you’ll find me reading and learning about space and dinosaurs with my two sons, dropping puns by the dozen, teaching friends to play Carcassonne, or running around somewhere in Wauwatosa.
Lives there a man with soul so dead
He’s never to his toaster said:
“You are my friend; I see in you
An object sturdy, staunch, and true;
A fellow mettlesome and trim;
A brightness that the years can’t dim.”?
Then let us praise the brave appliance
In which we place this just reliance.
And offer it with each fresh slice
Such words of friendship and advice
As “How are things with you tonight?”
Or “Not too dark but not too light.”
