Beautiful Online Experiences // Motivation for Organizations

Howdy! I’m Ethan. I’m a Designer.

I create delightful, user-first aesthetics and wield down-to-earth online technologies that make it easy for you to update content and immerse your visitors in a beautiful online experience.

I’ve also been told I do a darn good job with:

WordPress Development
I specialize in college and university WordPress-powered themes, on-campus website consultation, and development of custom themes & plugins for higher-ed organizations.

Appreciative Inquiry (AI)
I help organizations understand their strengths and core values through a positive, “what’s working right” approach, to motivate teams and co-create a clear direction for their future.

Ethos & Value System

I am a creative self-starter with a positive vision, inspired by a zeal for forward-thinking design. I will be the one to create compelling solutions, to catalyze effective process, and to cultivate a team bias toward action. I think deeply about the small details and thrive on strategic know-how. I am ready to join a group of like-minded people who will challenge my talents and push creative boundaries. Let’s do this!


Software, Framework & Technology

Adobe Creative Cloud (InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks), Apple iWork (Keynote, Pages, Numbers, iMovie, GarageBand), Sketch, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Espresso, HTML5, PHP5, CSS3, JavaScript & JQuery, Industrial Automation Software, LightWave 3D, MySQL, cPanel, Apple/OSX, Windows, MAMP, Ubuntu & Linux.


Living The Dream

When work is done for the day, I spend my time single-speed mountain biking, trail running, road cycling, rock climbing, homebrewing, nordic & telemark skiing. I currently live and work in the hardscrabble town of Midland, Texas with my wife Emily, daughter Cora, and two dogs – Dasiy and Lupe.
