Let's build a website.

My favorite kind of project is highly collaborative and process-oriented: asking you questions to help articulate your audiences and goals; drawing out the stories behind your work; sketching out a structure and form that communicates effectively; and building you a website that is solid, reader-friendly, and easy to maintain.
