CEO & Founder, Pixelvise & Lit Hood

I write about my experiences, travels and good food.

I am a web designer, digital strategist and entrepreneur. I’ve pretty much always had a knack for creating something new on my own. From websites, applications, software, digital art, video games, books and drones, I’ve done it all. In short, designing, building, launching and scaling products and startups is my jam — right now I am specifically focusing on WordPress and web-based products.
Currently, I’m the proud Founder and CEO of Pixelvise, a creative agency helping people get their online business off the ground. Since its establishment, Pixelvise has worked with over 500+ brands, including some fine companies like Dropbox, Amazon, Google & Marriott. We’re making a real difference on how millions of folks use WordPress everyday and get their businesses online.
