About Me

Professional Life

I'm a seasoned and eclectic web professional with 14+ years of experience helping clients reach their on-line goals.

My ability to collectively offer strategy, design and development makes me a powerful package. This trio not only saves time, it provides much more harmonious results.

Personal Life

When I'm not behind the computer, I'm most likely in my woodworking shop attempting to make furniture. I really enjoy learning new things. Just recently, I started into leathercraft and have found it incredibly rewarding!

I am currently married to the love of my life, Joy. We live in Ohio with our son, Luke and our three dogs: Bogart, Gabbana & Max.

What I Do


We talk, listen and we scribble together. This results in dry-erase boards and notepads filled with what my colleagues have dubbed, “bArtwork.”

These strategy sessions will happen often throughout projects. Each one is done to help us clearly visualize where we need to be and how to get there. All too often, creative professionals just “wing it.“


Although aesthetics are important, design is much more than the appearance of something. It encapsulates how it works, as well as and how it is used.

My approach to design stems from abstract thinking, obtaining a clear understanding of the audience and getting frequent feedback. Design will (and should) evolve with time.


The words Programming and Data are complex ways of saying Operation and Information.

Mapping out pivotal points in logic and information are the key to timely projects. It requires forward thinking and an understanding both the design and strategy. Everything else is just language and syntax.

Why Hire Me?

I'm accountable, experienced and thirsty for new relationships. My skill set is incredibly verbose and can be leveraged in many different ways. Regardless of the size of your team, I can and will adapt to your needs.

Also, it's worth noting that...

I'm easy to work with!
