Design. Write. Solve. Serve.
I'm a problem solver—I believe design is fundamentally about solving problems; making people's lives and the world around us better; and designing for the other side of the screen.
I help lead Envy, a web consultancy where we make things like Code School, and build digital products for Google, O'Reilly, GitHub, and Cisco. I've also provided brand and design consulting for Yum! Brands, NBC-Universal, Arnold Palmer Hospital, and dozens of small businesses. I often speak on design and branding, I've written Branding Matters, a book about branding for small business, and Three Pipe Problems, a book about solving problems through design. Most importantly, I’m a husband, and father. I'm an ex-swimmer, amateur cyclist, and a borderline crazy UNC Tarheel fan. I also like bourbon. And wine. And short sentences.
