Lehigh Valley, PA
I work with businesses in the endurance sports and food industries to build brands and have fun doing it. I co-own a design and research agency called Long Tail Creative with my wife, who keeps me on point! Our goal is to find marketing solutions that capture your imagination, while building the entire brand cohesively. Building websites is part of this process, but we also make videos and build trade show displays.
I graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2004 and had a few art shows in New York, which you can find on YouTube. After a stint at Columbia for MArch, I started my own business in the cycling industry and raced my bicycle at the highest level in the US. The cycling business and racing taught me how important the small details become when scaling up a business. Pushing a business past the tipping point is all about the details; hence, Long Tail Creative.
If you're a company that needs a fresh perspective on a challenging project, or a startup that needs hard business planning, I've learned how to manage people, products, marketing, promotion, deadlines and budgets.
We prototype projects using Adobe Creative Suite, Bootstrap and Wordpress to design on a daily basis. I write code in php/java/jquery/CSS/HTML5. I also know my way around the likes of Quickbooks, Quicken, and Excel.
