I have been fortunate to work with great clients on challenging projects in a variety of digital media for 15 years. I can help develop brands by strengthening communication and relationships.
From the ground up this site was created to be Search Engine Optimized. The site uses a flexible grid to “Respond” to different device dimensions so the site looks great on mobile devices as well as desktops and tablets.
I designed and coded the html for this Wordpress template and, working closely with the technical team at Middlebury College, transformed the design into a powerful Wordpress site.
This client needed to create a page that showed their catalog of publications. The template needed to use expression engine to serve dynamic content, so I wrote extensive, flexible, mobile-aware CSS for this page.
This flash interactive map is designed to illustrate the global reach of the United World College program at Middlebury College.
I'm more than a programmer/designer. I bring a wide range of interests and observations to every project I work on. Theater, art, filmmaking, fishing and carpentry are some of my diversions.
After graduating from RISD I worked for a start-up near Philadelphia before moving to Chicago and Leo Burnett. Working with clients such as the U.S. Army, Adidas, Kellogg and McDonalds gave me a great opportunity to gain experience and grow my technical expertise. After our children were born my wife wanted to move home to Vermont, and I have been working on a variety of projects, from local to international, ever since.
Although I have been teaching and mentoring since RISD, this is my first time doing so at the college level. I don‘t use the title Professor because, although I have great knowledge of the current web, “[the web] is inherently chaotic, built by multitudes and continuously tweaked, with nobody in charge...”, and I am still a student/participant of its evolution.
When you work with computers you can miss working with people. It is one of the principal things I loved about working in an agency setting. To practice compassion, I break my routine (and get away from my desk) to use my hands, back and heart to help people. I work a few shifts each week doing direct care for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia. It is challenging work, but it is an opportunity to truly make a difference for each person I have the privilege to care for.
I am an overcompensating introvert. When I am on stage I feel a responsibility:
I have acted in everything from Slapstick to Shakespeare, and enjoy being part of a performance. Also, I love being around actors. They're a special breed.
