The more things change...

When I embarked upon this adventure, I knew it was going to be hard work. I was excited to find and work with new clients, and had no idea what kind of projects would be headed my way. While this little project is only a couple of months old, there has been a lot of work and so many great surprises. The best of all has been the network of local independent professionals who have welcomed me with open arms, and the occasional sympathetic ear.

Working as an independent contractor is incredibly rewarding, but it can be tough and thankless proposition with so many pitfalls you don't encounter during the course of working in an office. The independent contractors working in Old Town Fort Collins have been incredibly welcoming, a few quickly becoming close confidantes and enthusiastic cheerleaders.

It's true, I could probably go this road without a little help from my friends. It is absolutely more fun to make the trek with like-minded people around me to keep me honest.

Hanging a Shingle

So, this has taken a while.

In addition to designing for and supporting my wonderful clients for more than a decade, I have had amazing day jobs that have enriched my skillset and broadened my horizons. Now that I have embarked on another adventure – into the Journalism Innovation Masters program at Syracuse University – it's high time I make this move official, and move into the solo creative professional realm.

My goal for this project is to provide the best work possible for small businesses, local non-profit organizations, and individuals like me who need fast, affordable design work. If you know me and we have worked together before, thank you so much for your work and support, I truly value each of the clients I have been privileged to worked with. If we don't know each other, but you need design or marketing help, drop me a line. I'm ready for you and happy to help out.
