A Midwesterner At Heart
Originally from the Midwest, after graduating from Indiana University in 1999, I found myself heading to the south for warmer climates and new adventures.
In 2006 I relocated to Asheville, NC after accepting a newly created graphic design position in the Communications Department of the North Carolina Center for The Advancement of Teaching. Ready to explore the region and settle down for a long time, my wife and I bought a house in West Asheville where we currently reside with our two children.
Other professional roles have included Junior Designer for an in-house creative department, Graphic Designer in the Marketing & Public Relations Department at a community college, Interactive and Communications Manager for the Haywood County Tourism Development Authority, and Director Of Client Services for a small web start-up.
Interests outside of work include volunteering, traveling, hiking, the outdoors, cooking, collecting silk screen prints, seeing live music, soccer, Bikram yoga, and most importantly plotting our families next adventure.

How Can I Help Your Business?
Design And Branding
At the core of every business, both big and small, is how the brand is preceived. Understanding a clients’ business objectives and audience needs is what makes any branding efforts successful. Taking that information along with an intelligent use of technology, some good story telling (content), and a solid social media presence is what makes a brand attract customers. Let me work with your business to carefully craft a logo and help create your story online and in print.
Tired of spending hours trying to figure out how to manage your site? Wish you had a “web guy” on staff but can’t justify a full or part time employee? That’s where I can come in. I run across individuals and business owners all the time who say they have a website, but they don’t have the time to learn how to manage it properly. As a result, they neglect upgrades, content updates, and more, and their website suffers as a result. Let me help you manage tasks like content updates, adding images, updating content management systems & plugins, adding products to ecommerce sites, and any other day to day tasks your business might have.
Search Engine Optimization
Since the Google Panda and Penguin updates, search engine optimization (SEO) has become even more important for building online traffic and conversions. Let me help your business or organization create a solid SEO campaign including keyword and market research, website analysis, onsite optimization, content creation, and link building with an ongoing strategy.
Can social media provide a positive ROI for your business? So many businesses are aware of the importance of social media, but aren’t sure how to use social media or what channels are right for them. Let me help you create a social media strategy that will provide your company a positive ROI.
Is your company using web analytics for marketing? With expert help, your company could maximize your usage of Google Analytics to increase your business profits and understand your users. Let me help your business set up and better understand your websites data.
Don’t know where to start? Your not alone. Over the years I’ve met many business owners that are in the same boat. Because not two businesses are alike, I offer a free consultation as a starting point for any businesses unsure of where they want to start. Contact me to get started!
