About

I designed my logo by starting with a square grid, rotated 45°, overlaid with a circular grid, an S-curve and shaded to represent my initials.

I prefer logos that have low aspect ratios, are high contrast and balanced so that they are recognizable in a wide range of applications.

BUSINESS

I have been in business in various forms over the years (DBAs, partnerships, a couple of LLCs and S Corps). I’ve done direct contracting and subcontracting, been a partner and executive. I have benefitted from coaching and mentoring in various areas that include project and quality management, as well as advertising and marketing. Due to my involvment with writing music and software, I also have a special interest in all three types of intellectual property law — particularly copyright law.

I am a highly experienced website engineer/artist, and I am on a mission to stamp out the slow, the hazardous, the ugly and/or annoying.

If you suspect that your website is any (or all) of those things, press this button now.
