Stocky, My Latest Theme

Stocky, My Latest Theme

Stocky was an exercise in patience for me. The past year has been a busy one, but I actually started design and development of Stocky in June of 2013. A little more than a year later, I present Stocky; A Stock Photography Marketplace Theme.

How To Build Your Business

Last month I was invited to speak at the first Envato Live in downtown Chicago. I met some awesome people including Envatoians (I think I made that word up) as well as a number community members and a handful of other authors. Plus I got a sweet hoodie.

Say Hello To The Action Network

Design Crumbs + The Action Network

Just because I don’t have a portfolio on the site anymore doesn’t mean I can’t talk about my happenings and goings on, right?

This year I’ve been part of an amazing team building out version 2 of The Action Network. Last week, we went live at actionnetwork.org. We even caught the attention of The Washington Post.
