Service Description

Working with me means working with an old dog. I've seen a lot in the media and Internet industry and accumulated a lot of experience.

I worked in advertising, publishing and design, in large companies and start-ups. I have an MBA so that neither the financial or the project management side of projects scare me.

I do a lot of strategy, consulting and conceptual work, esp. user experience for websites, mobile apps and SmartTV Apps. I even know how to code HTML and CSS so a quick prototype to show the idea is no problem.

I like to see websites and apps more like communication products and the process to create them as product development.

I have handfull of personal side projects I am involved with, which enables me to try new things like SmartTV, mobile apps, video production and distribution, monetization etc.

You can see clearly, I'm not an expert in any particular field. If you're not scared working with a more general approach and someone who likes to think out-of-the-box we might be a perfect team. I might even be able to get your business or project a totally new spin.
