It All Starts Here

Strategy is a word that is too often used for too many meetings and not enough action. That is not our process and nor should it be yours.  Our goal is move beyond meetings and get your brand into action.  That could be by designing a social media post campaign, a photo or video shoot, some well crafted copywriting, or a large integrated project. Let's get started.

Think Big


Even the smallest ideas can become big ones.  My process starts with the small details and then tackles the big idea.  Let's start small, think big, and get things done.

My Beginnings

My career began as many others do...looking for the first job that I could find.  And luckily, I got the first one I applied for.  I started as a shoe salesman at a department store in Raleigh, NC.  Little did I realize how that experience would transform the rest of my career.

I worked at that company through college, which led me to the next job I applied for, where I began my financial services career as a loan processor.  I quickly became very knowledge in complex loan programs as a underwriter, all the while maintaining a focus on customer service and experience.  It was with this knowledge in had, that I transitioned into sales with the firm which allowed me to truly understand what it meant to earn a dollar.

I was a top performing salesperson and manager before making the difficult decision to switch careers amid the mortgage meltdown of 2008.  My family and I decided to move back home to Boone, North Carolina where we still reside.  I took a position as a sales person with a local marketing and advertising company, quickly becoming the sales and project manager for the firm.  At this point I become very eager to learn about marketing, web design & development, and photography.  

I was able to launch a creative services division where we serviced numerous local organizations with high quality branding and marketing solutions.  I also oversaw our own brand, High Country 365, which is a local events calendar.  It was during this time my love of visual and technical really combined.


TODAY

I am now employed on a contract basis by numerous clients throughout the Western North Carolina region to utilize my creative, technical, and communication talents.  I am currently on contract with Appalachian State University as a designer and developer for the Drupal Web Application Project, where I design, code, and facilitate a better web presence for the university.  I am also actively engaged with numerous small businesses throughout the region to enhance their brand through web, design, and photography.  I currently volunteer my time in three distinct organiztions:

  • Silicon Hollar - A group of like-minded web professionals dedicated to creating a thriving tech scene in Boone, NC.
  • High Country Beer Fest - One of the top ten beer festivals in the south, I am responsible for marketing and advertising.
  • theHeart - I volunteer in the children's and worship ministries.  My family and I have been regular attendees for 6 years.

I am currently seeking full-time or contract employment opportunities within the following areas:

  • Business Development
  • Brand Strategy
  • Front End Web Development
  • Web Design
  • Product and Event Photography

Visuals


Photos are everywhere, they say they're worth a thousand words, and they're the center piece of everything I do.  I love creating visuals that inspire and conjure emotion when telling a brand's story.

SAMPLES | 500px

I enjoy the process of photography, how the world can engage with your brand through an image, and the experience that can be ingrained in a user through a visual.  I have worked with businesses, non-profits, events, and individuals.  I have helped events run photobooths and create commercial work for advertising and marketing.  Below is a sample of some of my work.
