Designing, writing and taking photos are all means of storytelling, and they each represent a critical part of my creative process. The subject matter may vary, but the passion for the art of engaging an audience is the same.
This is my story.
I have been a creative professional for 22 years, written a best selling book on the subject of Web design and spoke at design conferences around the country. I’ve worked at agencies and corporations; I’ve been a consultant and I’ve started an agency. I recently discovered a passion and a knack for taking photos.
I live in a converted barn in Wilton, CT with my wife and two daughters.
