I'm behind this. Bring back the quotes!

Hey, I'm Nathan.

I'm a Senior Interaction Designer, Information Architect, and Brand Champion living in Victoria, BC.
(It's pretty much one of the most beautiful places to live in Canada)

Now you can scroll till your heart's content (sorry about that).

It's ok. I know you want to jump to the work. I usually do too. But how about you get to know me just a little bit first? I'll keep it short, and I can even show you I know a few buzzwords.

I’m a seasoned freelance and agency tech-savvy creative — with a proven track record for translating complex ideas into great experiences for audiences.

I’ve also gathered and motivated interdisciplinary teams, built and managed brands from the ground up, worn every hat on the rack, and leapt tall buildings in a single bound.

I've worked with some pretty cool brands like Whiffcraft, Warp Academy, eBillity, Google's Wildfire, 1E Solutions, Thomson Reuters, Victoria Division of Family Practice, Alberta Parks, Uptake/Groupon and Dominos Pizza Australia. I'd love to list them all, but every brand's story is worth more than just a name in a list. And it's been 15 years, that would be a really long list.

I currently work as an "in-house-but-not-actually-in-house" creative with some very talented agencies including Split Arrow Communications, One Net Marketing, Authentic Lab, Dodd's Eye Media and Triveni West Communications.

Depending on their needs, my hat with each agency varies.

And of course, I've made some stuff.

The obligatory photo based portfolio gallery. Given some time this will be replaced with a Case Study section, because one-up photos can't give you a full picture of how awesome these clients are.

I'd love to have some more of my work ready to show you right now, but I'm in the process of rebuilding my portfolio to focus on detailed case studies.

It was easy to let my personal portfolio slide while I had a good few years (ok, a lot of years) of in-house agency work at One Net Marketing, and away-from-computer time on the weekends. One thing I've learned recently is the importance of making case studies a part of your project workflow.

It shouldn't take too long, but for now you still have options.

So, Thanks.

You've just spent seconds with me that you could have spent on Facebook.

Some really fun scripts, ifVisible.js and TimeMe.js, have been timing how long you've been interacting with my site. Because, math. And guess what? That's not including idle time. It stops after 10 seconds of inactivity, or time on a different tab (like Facebook). It's smart like that.

So yeah. Thanks again. I super appreciate it.
