I make things that help you make sense.
Video, copywriting, documentation, blogging, research, product design; those are the kinds of things I've spent the last ten years doing for a variety of different -- mostly technical -- companies. This site is home to lots of examples of what I've done over that time, from product pages to instructional videos, to brand building and lots more. I currently work for Efficiency Exchange, Inc. (you can learn about EEx here), but I also like taking on freelance and contract work from clients I can help. If you think you might be one of them, let me know!
About Consulting & Freelance Work
There are a lot of common practices among consultants and the companies that hire them that I find unhealthy, counterproductive, and generally bad. I avoid them by adhering to the following principles, which may sound irritating and self-righteous at first, but if you stop and think about it, are really just common sense.
- let people know what something costs upfront
- impress clients with the work you produce and how you act, not who you know or what you wear
- treat the people you work with like human beings and not obstacles to getting what you want
I live in the DC area; there are any number of consultants you can hire around here who will spend all of their time talking big and/or looking the part while very quietly stealing your money. I'm not interested in that kind of thing, but I think it's only fair people know that ahead of time.
