I am a freelance graphic designer and web developer, based in Southeast Michigan.
I specialize in creating custom-designed advertising solutions for small, local businesses but have worked for many clients across the country. Born and raised in Southeast, Michigan, I have worked in Print, Advertising, Web, and Interactive Marketing since the early 2000's. My objective is to build a long-lasting relationship with my clients by acquiring their confidence in my ability to consistently exceed their expected specifications. I believe that through my creativity and artistic talent, I am capable of improving my clients' brand identity and online presence.
In college, I studied 3D/2D animation and graphics/multimedia. After graduating, I quickly realized the only way I could make a name for myself in the animation field would be to move out west. Unfortunately, that wasn't an option for me because I love my family and my home state. That meant I had to find another direction for my career. One of my teachers recommended a local web development company named, Synergy Soup so I reached out and they agreed to take me on as an intern. Once I had fulfilled that obligation, I was asked to stay on full-time, which I did for about a year until I moved back to Livingston County to be closer to my family.
In August of 2008, I began working full-time for a local web development agency called Motor City Interactive until January 2012 when they became Chief Internet Marketer. It was a fast-paced job where and I wore many, many (OK, sometimes too many) hats. Being so busy really helped keep me on my toes, teaching me to be a great multi-tasker.
In the fall of 2009, my wife Kristan (then fiance, pictured here with me) and I opened a hair salon in Brighton, Michigan named, K Bella Hair Studio. Our vision was to create an atmosphere that was both tranquil and trendy for everyone from young to old, specializing in all hair care (from natural beautiful perms to bright blue streaks) and makeup (for your wedding day to your New Years Eve Party). In 2013, we expanded the salon to include a full-service day spa and changed the business name to K Bella Hair Studio & Spa (www.kbellahairstudioandspa.com). Business has been great and much of that has to do with the amazing team we have assembled, they are all very close!
In October of 2011, I married the love of my life, and rock-star hairdresser, Kristan Sayers. We're both extremely dedicated to our craft, every day we get to do what we love and people pay us for it - I don't think it gets much better than that! In 2015, we moved from Brighton to Howell, searching for peace and quiet and room for our dogs to run. Sure, the "broadband" speeds leave something to be desired but we're very happy "out in the sticks".
I am committed to providing each client with outstanding customer service.
That means providing more than just a pleasant experience during the process of completing your project, you'll receive comprehensive and reliable on-going support, long after the job is complete. Keep in mind, your business's website should never be considered "done", it should constantly be evolving and optimized to drive leads and improve the experience for your customers - that's why you need a reliable partner.
