Did you know McDonalds has their own channel? If you live in California, you may have seen the channel in certain McDonalds locations.

Our client, Mojiva called. They needed a quick landing page for Lego/Lord of the Rings. They needed me to quickly engage kids before showing them where to buy the game in their area.

First off, big thanks for all the nice comments about my new portfolio format. When I added a “Companies and Clients” section in the footer, I thought it may cause a stir. It did. People asked to know more. To be clear, those logos represent a partial list of either companies I worked for or […]
