I started Brave Whale in 2009 after discovering the benefits of a personal approach to web design. People want to work with someone who’s interested in educating them and maintaining a mutually valuable relationship. I try to approach each project with an understanding of the business’ background, needs, and goals. I’ll translate that into as simple an experience as possible, with a focus on customer actions. I believe a good design is easy to use, and its visual form should follow naturally.


Brave Whale, often mispronounced as “Blue” Whale, is the whimsical and impromptu name given to my one man web design and development studio.  Keeping my operation small allows me to develop closer client relationships and spend more time helping each business grow from a continually improved website experience.
