From creating "the greatest thing ever" for start-ups, who since became viable companies, to creating award-winning "We're the greatest thing ever" for Fortune 100 companies, who made another $300M+ as a result—I've had my hand in all aspects of visual design and creative direction from conception to completion. How? Because it's not just about great design but a greater impact. An impact that's inspired by the core values, the innovative strategies, and the unique identifiers of any business—all wrapped up into some damn good creative. That's what I call the secret sauce. The same sauce your audience relates, retains, and responds to... and without an engaged audience—you've lost.

Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.
