principal + creative lead
I am a DIY, jack-of-all-trades kind of guy, always have been and probably always will be. I love learning too much to be anything else. I design, code, write, draw, analyze, game, make music, work on cars, study foreign languages...the list goes on. The bottom line: I'm obsessed with solving problems, in whatever form they may take.
principal + sales lead
I like solving problems and building things. Creativity is more than pretty graphics - it’s about thinking outside the box to find practical solutions that actually make a difference to people. Seeing goals accomplished, for ourselves or for our clients, is the best part of running a business.
My favorite part of my job is engineering tools that go above and beyond for our clients. If I can come in and build a tool that solves a problem they've been grappling with for years, that's the best feeling in the world.
account manager + UX
I like to work where people and data intersect. In addition to keeping projects moving forward, I also provide insight as to the how and why people find and interact with your website so we can make informed decisions based on real data.
director of marketing
I love to solve customer problems. My goal with every organization is to get them what they need and help them reinvigorate their passion for their product or service. To me this isn’t a website design; it’s an opportunity to look at what you’ve been doing, what’s right, what’s wrong, and grow.
marketing strategist & copywriter
Communication is my craft and my passion. Interviewing our clients and their customers to learn their language and then working with them to create a more effective strategy is as challenging as it is rewarding. With the written word we can instruct, entertain, inform, and sometimes even change the world.
I built Google. Just kidding, but I do love building complex websites with complex functionality. I enjoy getting a project that I can obsess over until I’ve perfected it. The beauty of my job is the subtle transition back and forth between creativity and practicality, a perfect platform to thrive in my natural environment.
I am a process driven person, and the creative process is at the heart of who I am. Every design is an opportunity to take a risk and see what works. The only thing better than putting together a great design that people resonate with is also doing it in a way that's unexpected.
build/create has been a key part of our team since 2012. They continue to be dedicated and proactive by regularly advising us on how we can improve our site as new technologies emerge. Their collaboration and expertise has been very important in the success of our project.
