Beautiful Experiences // Motivation for Organizations

Howdy! I’m Ethan. I tend to create things.

I love being a creative – the challenge of visual storytelling, of connecting a user-first design aesthetic to authentic brand narratives – it’s been my passion for over 20 years.

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

UX/UI Design Strategy
I specialize in the design and development of customized WordPress themes & plugins for higher-ed and nonprofit 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 & Values

I am a creative self-starter with a positive vision, inspired by a zeal for forward-thinking design. I create compelling solutions, catalyze effective process, and will 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.


Software & Technology

Sketch, Coda, Espresso, Adobe Creative Cloud, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, iMovie, GarageBand, Microsoft Office, HTML, PHP, CSS, JavaScript & JQuery, MySQL, cPanel, Apple/OSX, Windows, MAMP, Ubuntu & Linux.


Living The Dream

I spend my own time single-speed mountain biking, trail running, road cycling, rock climbing, homebrewing, and nordic skiing. I currently live and work in the hardscrabble town of Midland, Texas with my wife Emily, daughters Cora and Sofia, and two dogs Daisy and Lupe. Some day soon, we all hope to move to New Mexico.
