The Business of Design

Today I’m happy to announce the release of my new web design eBook, ‘The Business of Design’. I’ve written this book specifically for web designers looking to level up their careers by learning from my experience.


Inbox Zero

The majority of my work and personal life exists in the digital realm. I (like most people) use cloud-based apps now more than ever. On the surface, your computer looks pristine—free of the physical clutter that used to come with bloated desktop software. But just because you can’t see the mess, doesn’t mean it’s not there.


Using the Pomodoro Technique

For the past two weeks, I’ve been using the Pomodoro Technique to get my work done. And I have to say, I’m surprised by the results. So far it’s proven to be an incredibly efficient way to get both my client work and personal responsibilities off the plate.


Rebranding and updating

Coming up with a rebranding strategy for yourself can be difficult. In fact, many people push it aside, making excuses about not having enough time. I’m definitely guilty of that. After several failed attempts, I finally put my foot down. It was time to whip this ol’ site back into shape.


Goals for 2018

With the new year upon us, I decided to take some time and write out some goals (not resolutions) for 2018.


Halloween Mixtape

To honor my second favorite holiday, I’ve put together a Halloween mixtape to get you in the spirit (pun intended).


Photoshop timeline animation

This week I was working on a Photoshop animation for a client’s email campaign. I hadn’t done simple frame animation in Photoshop in a while, so I figured I would document the process in case anyone might benefit from it.


Apple screwed up… and it doesn’t matter

Today Apple announced the iPhone 7. I’ve been waiting for this day for as long as I can remember. In preparation for the event I read every juicy rumor, sifted through all the speculation, and found myself immersed in the next phase of Apple’s most iconic product.


Getting out of our layout ruts

If you’ve been involved with web design in any capacity over the past few years, you might have noticed that things are starting to look… well, the same.


Melange Weekender

The Garment Weekender by Hook & Albert is a game-changer. The bag combines the functionality of a garment bag with the pack-it-up portability and simple elegance of a luxury duffel bag. Seriously, you need to watch the video.
