Steve aboutmeAbout Me . . .

I am enjoying my time as a freelance media professional and starting a new tech company helping churches and tech teams. More is coming soon!!

"It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen." - John Wooden

I love that coach Wooden's approach to life is all about hard work and attention to details. The many years of late hours early in my career, with the help of lots of Mountain Dew, and putting my job first, really gave me the base skill set to be where I am today. Life brings wonderful changes and so, because I love what I do, I want to share my life outside of work with my family and friends without sacrificing my passion for design and a good work ethic. Jim Elliot quoted, “Wherever you are, be all there!” Balancing work and life is always difficult, but I practice being present while on the job to maximize my time spent working during the day, and then I'll “unplug from work” while spending time with other passions, allowing me to recharge and be ready to tackle the next day.

I'll never forget living in Clarksville, Tennessee, for the majority of my early career. I've had a lot of success working with great companies and individuals, and made lasting friendships that have endured throughout my career. My secret passion is youth ministries on all levels, from paid positions at various churches to simply volunteering for events. Upon moving back to Nashville ( my hometown ), I embarked on a new path of re-exploring Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, and reconnecting with old friends.

My background in design/prepress and managing print shops has made me confident I can hit the ground running, easily working with any team on any project. Armed with strategy, innovative ideas and the experience of building solutions for many different types of businesses, it is my passion to lead and be a part of a team that is dedicated to creativity, produces results that exceed expectations and continually raise the bar with each project. What sets me apart from most creative directors is that I harness the wisdom from many trusted professionals. Using this network of amazing people catapults projects forward with ground breaking innovation and immense time saving.

My experience in print and web design, conference production, and I.T. solutions brings together three rarely combined disciplines that can build consistency across diverse mediums. Armed with this knowledge and an eye to plan, I can truly take projects and design proposals to the next level.

I look forward to new journeys and new challenges ahead.

"I would like to give my heartfelt recommendation for consideration. I have worked with Steve on approximately a half dozen projects and conferences and have always had a great experience. Steve would be an excellent addition to any professional team. He has effective management skills and brings several other abilities to the table; from designing, to website management. He regularly shows an above-and-beyond attention to detail, along with a proven ability to train, counsel, and advance the people working with and for him."
