If it's worth doing, it's worth doing

Experience & Capabilities

Combination front-end QA engineer, creative technologist, devops, process/systems czar with years as an award-winning art/creative director and at the helm of a print & digital production studio: The experience (and wisdom) of 20+ years in a fluid, small-agency environment, I’m a relentless, meticulous, curious and competent technology fanatic committed to the making of great stuff.

Graphic Design/Art Direction

My origin is as a designer, which steered me toward advertising, an industry I’ve worked in for over 20 years. The work directly below represents my time as an art director and creative director, as well as freelance projects, both print and digital.

Front-End QA & Technical PM

I’ve managed the development of many types digital projects, performed QA/testing/issue logging & tracking, and regularly created and updated assets for WordPress, Drupal, Magento and hand-coded sites, marketing emails, landing pages and display advertising. I’ve transcoded and subtitled videos, generated animated SVG graphics and composited images. I’ve coordinated the work of internal, off-site, and contract developers and animators to produce/QA countless HTML emails and scores of Flash and HTML5 display ads. I’m a very hands-on troubleshooting partner and love jumping into code when needed.

Print/Direct Mail/Digital Marketing Production

With years of experience as a working manager of a fast-paced production studio, I know my way around specs, mechs, and comps—and production artists, who are a breed unto themselves. I’ve managed internal resources and external contractors, maintaining a tight grip on quality control, as the bi-directional conduit in and out of the production studio. As is often the case of production gurus, I’ve also anchored the creation/maintenance/policing of agency workflows and processes.
