I live and work in the woods next to the beach in Holland, Michigan with my wife, two daughters and super-mutt Wrigley.
I help companies create things like websites, apps, data visualizations, & branding. Formerly, I was the Creative Director at Visually, where I helped lead a team of over 1,000 freelance designers. I partner directly with my clients to reach a level of collaboration only possible on a small scale. I bring a manager's level of insight and strategy, with the execution of a senior designer.
Over the years I’ve worked with some of the world's leading design agencies and brands, including: Google, LinkedIn, National Geographic, Nike, Oracle, Skype, Target, Twitter, Visa, & YouTube.
