doitwithdesign is my multimedia design studio based out of Austin, TX, and I occasionally cowork from Chicago and the Bay Area. I have an arsenal of skills in design work and beyond.

The internet is one of the most interesting and useful things to have ever happened. I believe clean design and flawless functionality are key to making the best use of it. My blog here is where I share my professional and entrepreneurial notes. Etc is a collection of useful resources I have found, sometimes the hard way.

A good design takes discovering the client's needs, planning, research, careful development, and testing before it can be deployed. Sticking to this process is key to any successful project, and forms the core of my work. Check out my portfolio while you're here.

He's always under the Line—fiery hot, I tell ye! He's looking this way—come, oakum; quick. Here we go again. This wooden mallet is the cork, and I'm the professor of musical glasses—tap, tap!" "There's a sight! There's a sound! The grey-headed woodpecker tapping the hollow tree! Blind and dumb might well be envied now. See! that thing rests on two line-tubs, full of tow-lines. A most malicious wag, that fellow. Rat-tat! So man's seconds tick! Oh! how immaterial are all materials! What things real are there, but imponderable thoughts? Here now's the very dreaded symbol of grim death, by a mere hap, made the expressive sign of the help and hope of most endangered life. A life-buoy of a coffin! Does it go further?"
