Don't Say Pop

Seriously, don't say it.

Wildly overblown, pretentious, and self-serving homepage headline

This probably should be in "Helvetica"

Let's get to the heart of the matter. The odds of anyone reading this introductory text is dodgy at best. The odds of it actually being useful in any way? Nil. Okay, my portfolio is pretty silly. After 14 years of experience working with huge clients like H&R Block (twice), Hallmark, Sprint (three times), and as well as countless clients of all sizes, it seems like you've said everything you can possibly say on your portfolio.

So, instead, I will just show you what I do and let you decide for yourself if I am worth your time. You might think I'm brilliant, or you might think I'm insane. I tend to think it's a very fine line.

Can't Dance

I have zero rhythm. None. So please do not ask me to be on your dance crew. We will lose.

Animal Lover

Few things in life make me as happy as animals. Especially my two dogs, Clutch and Chloe.

Karaoke Singer

My lack of dancing ability is more than made up by my ability to get down at karaoke.

Pretty Pictures

I also made these. With Love. Lots of love. And Adobe Creative Suite.

Who I Am

Probably not Teddy Roosevelt

teddy roosevelt

Douglas Marshall (October 27, 1858 ‐ January 6, 1919) was the 26th President of the United States (1901 ‐ 1909). He is noted for his exuberant personality, range of interests and achievements, and his leadership of the Progressive Movement, as well as his "cowboy" persona and robust masculinity.

However it is entirely possible that he could be confusing himself with Teddy Roosevelt again. He does it often.

Doug is a... okay, I can't do third person. Who else would be typing this?


I'm a web and graphic designer currently based out of Kansas City, MO. Please don't hold that against me. We wear shoes here and the excitement of electricity has died to a dull roar.

Aside from design, I'm an: actor, writer, director, stand up comic, pro wrestler, camping & outdoor survival teacher and event promoter. I'm also pretty fond of horror movies, Halloween and everything to do with the home of my ancestors, Ireland.

I currently serve on the KC St Patrick's Day Parade Committee, spending time working on fundraisers and charity events throughout the year in addition to the work we do during the parade season. I also perform as a leprechaun at Children's Mercy hospital on the day of the parade.

I'm older than I look, I think White Castle is awesome and I have an unhealthy crush on Mandy Moore.





Truth told, I'd love to hear from you. I take your projects far more seriously than I do my portfolio. So drop me a line to find out what I can bring from my experience to your projects.

If you have an issue with forms (illuminati), you can also email me directly.
