EXPERIENCE

Over the past 15 years I’ve worked with a variety of companies to launch apps, websites, and interactive experiences. I’ve taken startup clients to Seed and Series A rounds, and have also worked with fortune 500 companies. My work blends creative and technical while keeping business goals, market viability, and communication in mind. I see design engagements as a collaborative effort with teams who can rally together over a common goal.

Questions

Do you also do programming?

For larger initiatives I work with a development partner or a client's internal team. I do offer CSS/HTML snippets to carry design over to development for accuracy, however I do not work on production code.

What tools do you use?

I'm well versed in Photopshop, Illustrator, Sketch, and Omnigraffle. I also use After Effects, Principle, and sometimes Animate(Previously Flash) to create prototypes and motion videos.

What size and type of companies do you work with?

I work with companies who see the value in collaboration and the design process, and are willing to invest in shipping great digital products. The size or type of company isn't as relevant, although I usually fit best with organizations who can move and iterate at a fast pace.

How expensive are your services?

My costs are mid-range and I bring 15+ years of design experience to the table. I also can offer discounts for small startups or retainer scenarios. Feel free to email me to discuss your project in detail, and I'd be happy to follow up with a quote and rate.

Do you take on projects with equity?

Yes, in some cases I do. If the business and team is the right fit, then I can offer a mixed cash/equity package.
