Writer & Designer
Writer, author, web and graphic designer, video producer – I do it all. A somewhat introverted and quirky multipotentialite, I like to explore and do new things every day, which has made me quite the renaissance man when it comes to the knowledge and experience I can put to bear in both my writing and when I am focused on creating something for a client.
Sometimes, a person can do it all.

As I get older, even though I am constantly told this is a young person’s game, the future is looking brighter and more successful than at any other time in my life. I don’t even see retirement on the horizon, I am having too much fun to quit doing what I am doing now.
