I've built an exceptional portfolio and I'm investigating design and media services with the goal of launching (or re-launching might be the better word) a visual communications "shop". I want to expand and assemble a small team, possibly business partners, to produce an array of high-end promotional work at reasonable rates for our clients. I'm looking to serve businesses that need a new smart web layout, striking web content,…See More

I am Australian born, interested in working with web developers in Hawai'i on web projects and idea development.
I studied art and design in Melbourne, Victoria. I have worked in New York for Flax Advertising, and in Sydney for the Billy Blue Group. I have travelled to 40 countries. I have built impressive sales for Clarins Skincare and other French products as an Art Director working with the importor's Marketing Manager.
As a fine artist, in NY, 1985, I founded an international art exchange project for peace and nonviolence called The Lovelink Project.
I also enjoy producing portrait art.
Hey Michael, just saw you joined the WordPress group. Always cool to see another WP fan!
Your Lovelink project sounds really interesting. I've been working with TEDx Honolulu on building their website, and they're looking for speakers like you. If you've got an idea you want to share, I'd encourage you to apply on their "Nominate a Speaker" page (you can nominate yourself). See you around TechHui.
