Good stories always have impact.

All of us have a story to tell. We want our story, our transmission to have an impact with others. Or, maybe not. Maybe all you need is a creative lead for a design project, perhaps reliable web admin or all-round design/production skills for a specific time period (Great! I just had to ruin a good story). Anyway, let's meet, have a coffee and make your project happen.

My love for communication began as a kid putting pencil to paper drawing cartoons. As an adult, I had to figure out how to spec type: You know, Body copy: Helvetica Regular, 9/13pt, 60pica width. [blurred fast forward effect to 2017] Later I became proficient with a handful of graphic and document production applications. Chuck in a decent understanding of a couple video and audio applications. Then recently, I've taught myself to write standards compliant code - HTML5, CSS3 and W3.CSS. And out of necessity, a bit of php, mysql, Javascript, and JQuery. Then there is a host of ancillary stuff like npm, bower, github, SSL certificates, cPanel, phpmyadmin, .htaccess file, SQL injection, XSS, Google Analytics, Analytics Spam, Filters. "DUDE! I just wanted to draw a stinkin' cartoon!"

My broader communications background (20+yrs) is in print/digital graphic design, marketing and illustration. A brief overview of projects and skills is laid out below. Have a look.

TATLOW & RAWLINGS - Apostles of Paine
Tatlow & Rawlings spawned the "Common Sense Movement" to reclaim the American republic.

I originated the concept, produced all creative and graphics, wrote most of the copy and coded website using the W3.CSS framework - smaller and faster than other CSS frameworks; supports modern responsive design (mobile first) by default; provides CSS equality for all browsers; provides CSS equality for all devices.
