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 stretched me far 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’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!

I can write short, snappy, humorous copy that has a voice and garners engagement on social media. I can write very structured, grammar-nazi-proof, technical copy. And I can also write keyword optimized web copy that’s meant to grab the attention of readers and search engines alike.

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 your brand is is what people say about you when you’re not in the room. It’s really rewarding to help build that for a new business or help it grow for an existing one.

From logos to full-scale identities, and from social media graphics to full websites, I can design just about anything according to best practices, trends, and brand standards. I’ve also learned the hard way how to make some of the most difficult print projects turn out successful. Design is the foundation for my skills.

Good design is invisible. Great copy inspires action. Fantastic photos capture memories. None of them are worth their salt if they’re not applied strategically to align with business goals, data, and current technology. Every single decision that I make on a project is justifiable and intentional.

I view photography as a staple ingredient in the recipe that is visual communication. I don’t approach the lens as just capturing moments; rather, it’s like painting those moments with the light, color, and shadows that enter it.

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.
