My Own Words: I love this statement: All things being equal, design will tip the scale. You'll also find that statement elsewhere on this site. Often times it's subconscious, but if you're considering product X and Y, and Y looks better or seems to be easier to use, well I think we know which direction you'd go. That's one of the major reasons I find passion in what we do. We have the ability to affect decision making based on real value, not trickery and intangible nonsense. I don't like intangible nonsense.
Secret Identity: If I didn't do this, I think I'd be a carpenter. Sawdust rocks.

My Own Words: Don't pull any punches. Whether we are in a business meeting or on a golf course, I do my best to always "shoot it straight." I believe it's the secret to life, both personally and professionally. Life is too short to beat around the bush!
Favorite Quote: "Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters." - Norman Maclean, A River Runs Though It

Title: UX Designer/Developer
My Own Words: I'm a perfectionist by nature. I love creating pixel-perfect websites and I'll work on a business card until every square millimeter is just right. So I guess it makes sense that the design mantra that I live by is "It's all in the details." Attention to detail can separate an award winning project from everything else. Also, I like to party.

Title: Digital Strategist
My Own Words: Well versed in "traditional" online marketing tactics (seems like an oxymoron), and always focused on taking a measured and revenue generation approach with emerging technologies, I love strategy and the execution of ROI generating tactics. I'm a student of organic search engine optimization, but love all forms of online marketing and seeing great results for great clients.
Aficionado of: All kinds of sports - literally. Name it and I probably love it, watch it, play fantasy versions of it, etc.

Title: Senior Web Developer
My Own Words: “Work smarter not harder” - While I’m not afraid of hard work, I thoroughly believe in this motto. Working smarter means saving time and energy. Saving time and energy saves money for our company and (especially) our clients. I look at all angles before making a decision on the best, easiest way to accomplish a task. Can I automate or streamline a process? Can I make something more efficient? Working smarter doesn’t mean cutting corners - that’ not “smart”, it’s cheating and always comes back to bite you in the end. Working smarter is all about being efficient because efficiency saves money, which is the ultimate goal - that and not working as hard!
Enjoyments: Cooking - especially grilling and BBQ. Anything goes good with wood smoke!

Title: Designer
My Own Words: Einstein once said, “ I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious”. Design is all about embracing your curiosity and trying out a hundred different possibilities until you find the one that works. Anyone can point out good design, but great design should be transparent.
When I’m not designing: I spend my days eating trail mix and obsessing over my dogs.
