WORD AROUND THE CAMPFIRE

WHAT I CAN OFFER

I’m passionate, resourceful and competitve. I take ownership in everything I touch, but I know that I’m just a steward of the project in the end. I’ve had the opportunity to work on projects that have stretch me beyond my comfort zone, and it’s made me better at what I’d do. I’d say I’m a jack of many trades and a master of several.

I love the responsibility of making a company, brand, or event successful and memorable from the start. A logo identifies something in its simplest form. That raw simplicity, and watching the response therein, is priceless.

I’m no Chris Coyer, but I do know my way around the WordPress backend. I’ve taught myself everything I know, and I’ve figured out that I don’t have to know it all, I just have to be ready to learn it in a hurry. I’m good enough to build any site, and I’m humble enough to know when I need to bring in someone to handle parse JSON in JavaScript errors. Hah!

A lot of folks take print for granted. It’s an art in and of itself that many designers don’t quite grasp. I’ve learned the hard way how to make some of the most difficult print projects turn out successful. From Pantones to process color, and the glossiest of coatings, I understand that there’s a ton of value and implications within every little detail of a print job.

As a designer, I’m tasked with making a message communicate. To the right people. At the right time and place. It’s as if I’m a translator for the people I work with. They share their message with me, and it’s up to me to help them figure out a way to communicate it visually.

Branding work is like the poetry of the design world. It’s a finesse thing where rules become part of the message. It’s said that a brand is the perceived emotional image of any entity. It’s really rewarding to help build that for a new business or help it grow for an existing one.

Since junior high, I’ve always been good at writing. I didn’t even enjoy it until a few years ago, but it just came naturally to me. I’ve written blogs that have been seen by the eyes of millions in a matter of days. Literally.

With an oilfield manufacturing background, and having been an emergency response team member at WFT and NOV, I’ve seen and responded to some really gruesome situations. Although I’m a desk jockey now, safety can’t be taken for granted at an office. I like to make sure everyone goes home safely to their families, and while this may not apply to all projects, I’m always watching.

DRIVEN TO DELIVER

I hate missing deadlines, and I love exceeding expectations for clients, both internal and external.

EFFICIENCY

Being organized with my work is something I pride myself on. I thrive on improving wasteful processes.

LEADERSHIP

I’ve been told all my life that I’m a natural born leader, but I’m also humble enough to take direction.

DEDICATION

My Dad always told me, “Boy, you gotta be 5% smarter than whatever it is you’re workin’ with,” and I refuse to be outsmarted by a computer, printer, or line of code.

LOYALTY

I will go to bat for my team and respectfully challenge anyone when I have a purpose. I stand up for what I believe, and I take care of my teammates. If I help my team win, we all win.

RESOURCEFULNESS

I love to turn nothing into something. Wether it’s a poor quality image or fixing someone’s cubicle, where there’s a will, there’s a way. I love to get stuff done, especially when it’s unexpected.
