After earning a BFA in Graphic Design from Rhode Island School of Design, my first job was roofing houses (thank you, economic recession of the early 90's). I eventually landed a position as a graphic designer for a small print shop and received a valuable education in production. I spent the first part of my career engaged in print and identity design before moving to the web in 2000. As a design consultant I focus on helping businesses be clear, strong, and consistent in their visual communication.
I'm not a native Rhode Islander but I've lived here long enough that I now give directions by where landmarks used to be. My wife (also a RISD grad) and I live in Providence and spend weekends indulging in our secret passion of yard sales and flea markets. As a result, our children have become master bargain hunters and negotiators.
I love helping my clients solve their problems. Unique contributions that I bring to the process are the ability to listen carefully and draw out the most important elements of the problem, which leads to better solutions.
