Hello. I’m Maxwell.

88% of online consumers are less likely to return to a site after a bad experience.

This percentage reflects how important it is for users to have a seamless experience through each website they visit. It’s never been an easy process, and as each day passes design, strategy, and new ways of thinking make for continuous improvements across all platforms.

We live in a world where design is an essential component for all users who crave aesthetics, ease of use, and an exceptional experience. To compete with this standard, myself and companies around the world strive to build contemporary business strategies that are deeply coupled with flawless ingenuity and attention to detail.

As a creative executive with a passion for both digital and print marketing, I posses a unique blend that fuses user experience design (UX) with an approach of optimizing all outbound campaigns including (but not limited to) email, social media, product management, SEO, paid media, and AMP (accelerated mobile pages).

From CBS Radio, Kindling Collective Co-op, Washington Energy Services, and pursuing my career with MicroK12 all within the beautiful setting of the Pacific Northwest, I have delivered hard work with driving millions in revenue, gaining traction across the United States, and never letting go of what is in sight – a beautifully designed digital landscape for all walks of life.
