Key Accomplishments

I'm unique in that I'm very comfortable with design (offline, online, UI/UX, graphics, brand material), digital marketing, user research, product development, troubleshooting, creative marketing, SEO, more.

I'm a sponge. I watch videos from while I'm in the shower, driving my kids to their activities. They know what cloud computing is. They're familiar with brand identity design and productivity tips...

...More so than scooby doo (though they are well versed in that as well).

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'd like to be a valuable piece to the core team of a startup with an idea that needs validation. Early stage customer search, from the ground up so to speak. I see the roadmap to finding product market fit and really enjoy the strategy and user research that is involved in figuring out if a product is worth building. I also enjoy product development such as building a site or app with the least amount of features in order to test the most riskiest guesses. My love is making things, always has been. Mostly that focuses on user interfaces for web apps though it can even extend to a little handmade "party favor" gift I give to people that give me their time to explain a product, tell me about their pains, or test a prototype for feedback.

As an Advisor

I'm a hands on fellow. I like to do the work as well as help others get organized and focused on their action items. I'm not afraid to handletter a quote for twitter, talk to the target audience about what their needs are to understand how we can solve them, have my designs destroyed during user testing, and work on weekends or nights. :)
