With a reputation as the designer whose vision and web design strategy is the prime catalyst for building multi-million dollar businesses, I’ve worked with Silicon Valley startups, pro sports athletes, Fortune 500 companies, best-selling authors and the world’s biggest entrepreneurs. My clients include Yahoo, Mercedes-Benz, Microsoft, The Highline in New York City, Danielle LaPorte, Marie Forleo and Kris Carr. You can see a longer client list here.
I also created and run an online course for fellow freelancers called The Creative Class. It's almost 700 freelancers strong, and growing daily.
I write regularly for Inc., Fast Company, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Lifehacker, ThoughtCatalog, The Next Web, Smashing Magazine, Adobe’s 99u and many other publications. But really, I like writing for my newsletter the most.
I’ve toured North America in the band Mojave, independently published five books, and worked as a freelance web designer for 17+ years.
You can listen to my friend Jason SurfrApp and I on our weekly podcast, Invisible Office Hours. We dish on everything related to creativity and working for yourself.
I currently live in the woods on an island with my gorgeous wife, Lisa, and some little rat friends. And I’ve also got a few more tattoos than you do.
For anything not web design related, email me here. For web design projects, they start at $9,000 and I'm not considering new ones until mid-May. I am currently not doing interviews or podcasts as I'm busy working hard on client work and products.
Note: I receive a lot of email - the shorter it is, the more likely I will be to reply.
