BRAND & BUSINESS CONSULTING
I believe we all have the opportunity to create more freedom in our lives. One of the places freedom can have the biggest impact is in the work we do. That’s why I focus on working with Makers, Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners. Some of whom are just getting started, some have been bootstrapping it for years and others who are wondering what the next five years might look like. I'm here to help, to empower with new tools, new ways of thinking and the confidence to take that next step toward creating more freedom in your life and business.
After years of working as a designer for some of the biggest companies in the Pacific Northwest, I started searching for a better understanding of my passions in life. I developed an interest in business and entrepreneurship and set out to learn all that I could. After years of researching and brainstorming new ideas, I sold all my things, quit my job, took a big road trip chasing the sun, and started a beer company. We raised a bunch of money, got lots of love, and were selling our beer up and down the West Coast. I learned a ton from the experience and have now decided to dedicate myself entirely to helping others make the leap that's right for them. Now, in addition to working with clients on their branding and design needs, I coach entrepreneurs on business development, branding, and best practices for their growing companies.
FREEDOM TO ALLOW THE GOOD THINGS TO HAPPEN
My personal definition of success
Justin is a trusted advisor and friend, and has been instrumental in my company's success. He helped me refine ORU through thoughtful design critique, both in branding and product development, and offers consistently practical and valuable feedback regarding production systems, brand positioning, and profitability. (In short, he’s awesome.)

Justin created a strong identity for Subway Book Review. It fits the style of my blog perfectly. The bookmark-business card speaks to his inventiveness and unique eye for design. Multifunctional, simple, beautiful. People notice it and comment on it all the time. Justin really listens and sees the soul of the project - and he gets things done. I love working with him.

Justin encouraged me to take my “someday” ideas and make them happen now. Many people have dreams that stay on the back burner for decades, but having a collaborator and coach like Justin can help you push past the doubt to the next level.
