ABOUT ME

I help clients integrate their legacy web sites into ExpressionEngine, Craft or similar content management platforms. I also continue to do design work, with a focus on corporate identity systems and front-end web design. The three stages of a project are roughly described below; I use Adobe products throughout the workflow. You can use the contact page to get in touch.

1 / Research

Understanding your goals, your resources, is it a single project or if you're seeking ongoing assistance; where you are now and where you want to be this time next month / year / etc.

2 / Visualizations

Sketches: rough or more finished, to help you visualize possible directions and allow you to give immediate feedback, which is incorporated in several rounds of revisions.

3 / Implementation

Creation of the final product, whether it be an installed content management system with templates containing a new design or a new identity for your organization with a style guide and files in formats for print and screen environments.

Mini CV

Earned an M.A. in English literature at Drew University while selling atlases on the side. In China I taught English, business communications, and literature at universities in Tianjin University. Back in the US again, I worked for a PR firm until making VP, then ran a design studio from 2001-09 working with governmental economic development bodies, banks, developers, and small businesses. Since '09 I've been in Hong Kong where I joined Rotary, freelance as a graphic artist / web dev, read a lot, take photos of wildlife, … and visited more of the places I saw in atlases 30 years ago.
