Creative Director & Partner @ Resound Creative
July 2009 - Present
You are remarkable. No really, you are.
Resound Creative helps our clients discover the stories that make them remarkable and communicate those stories to the world through genuine brand design and engaging content.
I give visual creative direction on all brand projects and then get my hands dirty, designing everything from logos to websites to print collateral for our clients.
Usability and Interface Design @ Cardinal Path
July 2011 - August 2012
I was a user experience and interface designer, working on a variety of websites for clients, as well as internal projects for Cardinal Path and it's partners.
My role was to assimilate the insights our analytics and usability teams gathered through clients' user data to create designs that both delight and convert.
I worked closely with the web development team to plan the functionality for each website (for both users and site admins) and ensure that the designs I created were implemented correctly to create the best user experience possible.
Musician & Designer @ Sunday Morning Drive
March 2004 - January 2012
Sunday Morning Drive is Good Guy Rock, so I guess that makes me a good guy rocker.
I play bass guitar, design artwork for albums and t-shirts, manage the website, and help with social media efforts.
Art Director @ R and R Images
January 2010 - July 2011
Every day is different for me at R and R Images: I come up with effective marketing campaigns, write engaging copy, and execute creative designs, both for the company and it's clients. I also manage the company's social media and web marketing.
But at the end of the day it's all about concepting and executing great creative work to show that R and R Images is a creative leader within the digital print industry.
Graphic Designer @ R and R Images
September 2008 - January 2010
If it needed to be designed, I did it. Projects included direct mail pieces, brochures, logos, tradeshow graphics, web sites, email templates, and online landing pages.
I was often the sole, full-time designer for the company and was responsible for managing each project within the deadlines set by the account manager and the client. As well, I managed relationships with web development and software vendors to make sure projects we executed on time and on or under budget.
Graphic Designer @ Freelance: Graphic and Web Design
2004 - 2009
As a self-starter learning the business of design, any graphic design project I could get my hands on, I took it.
Logos and business cards for start-ups, flyers for bands, wedding invitations for the newly engaged; these were just some of the projects I helped my clients with.
Not every project was a complete success, but I learned a ton about graphic design, customer service, project management, and how to make them all work together in a business.
