I’m a Scorpio, I listen to lots of Otis Redding, and I like long walks on the beach. With a whole heap of experience, I also help create design solutions and narrative artwork. </dating profile>

What’s with the tooth and nail in my logo? Its common idiom, of fighting with all of one’s strength, is certainly applicable in how I complete projects. But, what it really represents is a healthy appetite for creative problems (I love sinking my teeth into juicy assignments) and for building solutions with proud artistry (hence the carpenter’s nail instead of a fingernail). Everything is approached with a goals-based strategy and then executed with lots of care and attention.
