Design Is Function

You're awesome btw.

"I never dreamed of having this beard. It dreamed of having me."
Forest Hill is a launch pad for me to connect with interesting and unique people that have a desire to grow a business or a brand.
"I will take your problem, solve it with amazing design and then you will pay me."

Designer / Developer

Below is a collection of my work, that I am very proud of. My projects are always a collective effort of both the designer and the client. You must get to know each other. I love sitting and talking through these amazing projects with these amazing people. My clients always become my friends.
Front End Development
I apply a "User-First"/Conversion-centered design approach, to all web and app development. A flashy, modern looking site is great, but if your users are not able to navigate and complete a specific action (conversion), then the site has failed. Often, there seems to be a division between designer and developer. One person designs a site and the other makes it function. I believe this approach fails to deliver a solid, usable app. Instead that approach produces an app that is to focused on elements that offer no benefit to that ultimate user conversion. An experienced developer can take a client's needs, deliver stunning graphics, and design a platform that directs the user to a specific action using simple UI.
