about

My name is Paul and I design beautiful, user-friendly web experiences.

Design, development, and solid communication; I do it all. I have years of experience bringing web ‘ideas’ from the early stages of information gathering, to mock-up design, all the way through development to completion and delivery.

I pride myself on designing sites that are both beautiful to look at and easy to use. I’m also proud of being able to develop those sites myself using the latest standards and best practices, making the final product clean and fast. To top that off, I have a valuable skill that is overlooked by a lot of designers, and even more developers: communication. During the four years I spent at Harvard Business Publishing, I honed my ability to talk with ‘normal’ people about design concepts and technical constraints in a way that is easy to understand.

But what’s your story?

After college, I set aside my philosophy degree and started a company with a friend of mine. We provided poker strategy, odds, and tips, and sustained ourselves through affiliate marketing for online poker websites. I was in charge of website design and development, and discovered that I love building websites. Okay, I wasn’t very good at first (Microsoft Frontpage!), but the internet is a wonderful place, and I read and read and read and learned. When online poker was shut down in the U.S., I was out of a job, but not without skills. I began working at Harvard University operations services, helping with the redesign of their website. From there, I went to Harvard Business Publishing, where I spent four years building executive learning portals for large clients (Coca-Cola, AT&T, GSK, Exxon-Mobil, Hormel, General Mills…the list goes on). At the end of 2011 I left my position at Harvard and have spent 2012 on my own, building websites for small businesses. I’m ready to begin the next chapter.

I love all things design, and I strive to always stay learning. I dabble in illustration and love to sketch, paint (Photoshop) and practice. I live with my girlfriend, Ashlee, in the heart of Harvard Sq.
