Working closely and collaboratively with businesses of all sizes, agencies and entrepreneurs, I provide strategic and creative branding, design, interactive, and advertising solutions that help you stand out in a crowded marketplace and connect with your ideal audience. I also draw on the talents of my collaborative network of very talented colleagues when needed to bring your brand and stories to life. I am forever curious, and I love to learn! Especially about everyone’s passion, specifically why they started their business and do what they do. My focus is on delivering purpose-built creativity that works to help driven companies create maximum impact in the world. Annnnd I have a helluva time doing it! I am currently the Founder & Principal Creative at Bluehaus Creative, a strategic Brand + Design Studio started in 2010. Before venturing out on my own, I worked for various small and medium-sized agencies, corporate in-house and contract positions, working with clients of all sizes, many industries and all around the world. I can also be found with my face buried in a new digital art piece/creative photo manipulation where I can bring unrestricted internal and often surreal ideas out into the real world. I’m forever curious and question everything, so this is a place for me to work out ideas and learn new techniques and skills. Some of these projects are in my Digital Art section and Instagram page. Be sure to like, share and let me know your thoughts on them when you stop by there. When I’m not creating awesome solutions for extraordinary people, I can be found in the gym at 4:45am with my amazingly beautiful (and strong) wife, in the kitchen cooking up some (ideally) delicious meals or enjoying a beer or perhaps more likely, a fine whiskey or bourbon in someplace dimly lit and atmospheric. I also don’t drink coffee or pop and love skim milk but don’t drink it often. I know, I’m all kinds of complex. I’m glad you’re here! I hope my work and this site brightens your day and helps you smile a little more. Thanks for dropping by! Ps. And hey, you’re looking really great today!
