Hello world.

Are you a small to medium sized business looking to build or revamp your website?

You've come to the right place.

I provide an end-to-end solution for web design, development and strategy - specializing in projects that are about creating that extra special je ne sais quois in the visual presentation that distinguishes you from the competition.

I have been building web applications for over ten years - working as a product manager across roles at three companies (where I climbed the corporate ladder from entry level to leadership positions), and during nights and weekends as a freelance developer and designer. Prior to that I co-founded a startup. Today, I bring all of these experiences together in one comprehensive service.

As I deepened my knowledge in these three areas - design, development, and strategy - I found that each one began to feed my understanding of the others. My product management benefited from my understanding of code and design principles, and my freelance projects from my understanding of product strategy. I believe that this breadth of knowledge is the basis of the service I provide - and what sets me apart from others.

Having a strong website is a key part of any business, but there is a large gap in quality between what you can get with an "out-of-the-box" Squarespace site and hiring an agency to build something customized. I believe in the democracy of good web design - that every business should have the ability to create a website that represents their brand and helps them grow. My goal is to make agency-quality custom websites accessible to businesses of every size.

Split Spirits is a whiskey company taking a new and innovative whiskey aging process - rather than aging the spirits in barrels, wood staves are added directly to the bottle. This puts the drinker in control of aging their bottle and allows them to experience the spirit at different phases of flavor maturation.
