Twenty years strong.

After stumbling into the emerging field of web design in 2000, I knew instantly that I wanted to do it for the rest of my life. Over the years, I have worn many hats including UX designer, information architect, graphic designer, illustrator, product designer, creative director, and slide jockey.

Sometimes I write.

I wouldn’t call it a blog exactly. But yeah, every now and then I get the urge to write something down. Topics cover everything from design to dumb observations. I urge you not to take any of it too seriously.

Design, it's what I do.

Both my profession and my craft. It isn’t super hero work, but it’s how I feel I can help make the world a better place in some small way. I’ve been fortunate in my career to have worked for these great companies.

"Chuck excels at team development and team building, at managing to a very high design quality and consistency, and delivers regardless of the unpredictability of circumstances."

Chuck is an outstanding leader, manager, and as important, creative designer. Over the four years I managed Chuck, he excelled at team development and team building, at managing to a very high design quality and consistency, and ensuring that he delivered regardless of the unpredictability of circumstances. Chuck created the department and discipline of Product Design at SPS, and over time I added the role of Creative Director where he was responsible for the corporate brand, and for ensuring consistent execution of the brand across all departments of the company. Chuck manages extremely well across organizational boundaries, and managing remote workers and teams. He has a very rigorous training and development regimen, and builds consensus and support comfortably. He’s an accomplished leader and I would hire him again, in a heartbeat.
