She’s a little bit country… I’m a little bit rock and roll???
Nah, we both like Hip Hop.
We are two best friends, on the same spectrum, Just at opposite ends And it works like a charm.
In truth we love all the same things, but differently.
We constantly push each other to be BIGGER AND BOLDER.
It’s kind of a beautiful thing.
WHAT I DO
I help people like YOU sell more stuff.
Sometimes that’s helping artists get clear on their voice, making their art irresistible. Sometimes it looks like helping realtors find that thing that makes them different than the other million and one players in their market. Other times it looks like writing copy, or about pages or some other crazy exciting thing we haven’t even thought up yet.
Every client is different, but it all comes back to the same thing…
I CAN SEE THE PART OF YOU THAT YOU CAN’T SEE FOR YOURSELF.
The part of you that shines really fucking bright if you just give it a little rub with the right polish. And that sparkle is no joke friends.
That sparkle is the part of you and your business that people fall truly, madly, deeply in love with.
My job is to help you find it, hone it and make it work for you, as simply as possible.
MY JOB IS TO MAKE YOU MORE MONEY, WHILE ALSO BEING TRUE TO YOURSELF.
NICK, NICHOLAS, NIKOLAI, N-BIZ, FISH FACE, OR MY PERSONAL FAVOURITE, AND MY JR HIGH NICKNAME OF MYRTLE THE TURTLE.
YES, I REALLY WAS THAT COOL.
THERE’S LOTS OF SHIT YOU MIGHT WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ME, MOST OF THOSE THINGS DON’T MATTER BUT I’LL HOOK YOU UP WITH THE FACTS ANYHOW, I’M KIND LIKE THAT.
I’m a 30 something-year-old who looks like I might graduate high school this year… or maybe next. Only recently have I embraced this good genetic fortune. I have the very best wife and more kids than you could possibly count, I like them all, you would too. This does mean that yes, I probably do more in a day than you, and I most definitely sleep less. I like it that way, keeps me on my toes. My wife likes it that way too because my need for less sleep than her means that I get up with the kids in the morning and she enjoys an extra hour of slumber each morning where she gets to stretch across the whole bed and drool without fear of mockery.

WHAT I DO
It feels cliche to say that your identity is SO MUCH more than your logo because every dang design site says it…
…but guys, it’s true!!
Finding that magical design sweet spot that really showcases who you are, your message and what you are selling is simply my most favourite thing to do.
I’m committed to turning out logo marks , brand identities and web designs that represent our clients in the very best light. To formulate ideas that are trendy, unique, captivating, yet timeless.
Together, we’ll put together a functional representation of who you are and what you’re selling.
It’s what I love.
The lowest point in my working life may very well have been that time I had to vaseline the entirety of my pimple-prone teenaged skin in order to avoid gunpowder burns while pushing a button to eject clay pigeons for various gun-wielding dudes. That said, that job paid cash under the table. So, maybe it still counts as a win?
Thankfully, life has gotten a lot better.
I did a 5-year stint in the Finance department of a telecommunications company. The excitement of color coding so many excel spreadsheets wasn't enough to keep me sitting under fluorescent lights, 8 hours a day for 5 days a week. I left there over a decade ago and began my love affair with design.
Even though design is my bread and butter, my whole life, I wanted nothing more than to be a mom. I'm rounding out 7 years into motherhood with twins and while the job doesn't pay super well, it's easily my greatest gig. They and my loving husband are the loves of all my lives. They are the marmalade to the bread and butter.
