I believe everyone is creative.
I aim to realize this through my company and the fun stuff I do on the side
Slice of Lime
I started Slice of Lime, a UX Design agency, in 2001. For over 14 years, I've put my heart into the company. I couldn't be more proud of our people and what we've all created together.
Through the years, we've grown an outstanding team of User Experience Designers and worked with amazing clients. Slice of Lime has been listed on the Inc 5000 as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States with over $2MM in revenue. We've also been named to Outside Magazine's Top 100 Places to work.
Locally, we're consistently listed as one of the fastest growing and top private companies. UX Magazine has named us one of the most effective UX agencies in America. And, our culture has been recognized in larger publications such as CNN Money and Inc.
We all rally behind the mantra "Create Amazing Experiences" which not only applies to the work we produce, but also to the way our clients feel about working with us and the work environment we've created.

Experiencing Our Clients
Outside of Slice of Lime, I've tried to find projects to take on to do for friends, for the community, for my kids, or just for me. All of my projects aim to stir up a little creativity in the people that interact with them.
I created a mural for Families First, an organization that provides services which strengthen families, nurture children, and end the cycle of child abuse and neglect. The mural is interactive and aims to inspire creativity in kids by having them contribute their own art to a magnetic wall.
Snowflakes Don't Wear Pants
"Snowflakes Don't Wear Pants" is a children's book I made for my daughter.
Boulder Popcorn was started by a friend of mine to show his kids a thing or two about running their own business.
Boulder:Create is a Podcast I created that features all things creative in Boulder, Colorado.
Projects in Concept Mode
There are always a bunch of ideas bouncing around in my head.
These are a few that I've been thinking about for long enough that they're likely to become a reality.
nano is a brewery concept that uses home brew recipes and "taps" into the crowd to vote the best brews up or down. Brews with more votes stay in production at the brewery. Over time, "nano brewhauses" in different states could make this a really fun concept.
Streeek is a simple iOS app paired with a small physical device via Bluetooth LE that tracks how many days in a row you've accomplished something. Clicking a button on the device will send messages and images to your phone to encourage you to keep the streeek going.
FriendlyBranch is the name of a non-profit I'm considering starting up in conjunction with the hospital mural I've been working on. Numerous hospitals and other children's organizations seem interested in the idea. FriendlyBranch would generate murals for various locations using local artists.
