The long version

People. For me it's all about people.

My experience has led me to a variety of different creative tasks, but in the end, every single one of the comes down to how I have been able to offer something of value to someone (be it a user, a client or a co-worker). Suuuure. That sounds great. But what does it mean? Well, here's how it breaks down.

I've spent the last five years working with online websites and applications. At various times I've spent time totally geeking out on certain aspects of the trade - from studying typography and how we use it to communicate, to writing clean and sexy markup, to studying how users interact with our designs - but all those things are are just the how. That's incredibly important, but even more formative for me was defining the why. Why do I do what I do every day?

The why is communication. The why is people It is taking a message from one person and delivering it to the next person in a way that is memorable and impactful. There are a lot of steps in this journey, and every single one of them is littered with people. My goal is to take the how - the design skills that I have cultivated - and use them to help.

Our world needs people to stand up. To connect everyone. To bridge gaps. Too many times I've seen an important message go unheard. That's what I'm here for - to bridge this gaps. To design channels of communication.
