I love this stuff.

Since the early days starting out in my parent’s suburban garage, I’ve been focused on helping my clients to succeed online and harness the power of good design. 

My mission is to help make marketing and design simple for business owners, to take it off your plate so you can focus on what you do best, run your business.

MIGHTYBOX
I quit college in Michigan with big dreams of moving west to California. Begin learning web development. The first iteration of my website design studio was born.
I called it Mightybox.

THE GARAGE
After getting my first few clients, I moved my ‘headquarters’ into my parent’s garage. I painted it lime green and 2 months later landed my first Fortune 100 client.

INSTAGRAM PRINTS
Alongside my design studio, I launch my first online product based business.  I named it Kanvess. A simple idea to print and ship Instagram photos. Featured in TechCrunch, Seventeen, and the LA Times. Orders surge and the business grows. I was fortunate to sell the business for six figures.

DONUTS!
My wife and I start a new small business we named Makers Donuts in Knoxville. We ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and grew the business by sharing our story and fostering community. Sold the business in late 2018.

HEAD WEST (AGAIN)
My family and I return to Southern California and rebrand the design studio as Woodrow. My mission is to help business owners succeed through smart and beautiful design.

December 2018

I help companies increase sales and conversions using smart design.

I live in beautiful Bend, Oregon with my wife Sara and our 3 daughters. My entire career I’ve been designing brands, products, apps, and websites.

Much of my focus is spent thinking through visual design, designing interfaces, and obsessing over building beautiful user experiences.

BBQ

My favorite food group. I’ve traveled across the USA searching for the very best and love making my own at home.

Moto

I own an adventure motorcycle and each summer I go on an epic multi-state road trip with friends.

Movies

I only (mostly) watch movies at the theater. Something about the popcorn and the darkness.

MICHIGAN

I don’t miss the winters but I’ll always have a sweet spot for my home state. Go Blue!

Tennessee

My adopted home state. My family lived in Tennessee for 12 years – I still miss those fall colors!

CAMPING

Since I was a little guy, I’ve loved the beautiful outdoors and camping (glamping) with my family.
