Learn more about me

What if you could have
the best of both worlds?

A front-end developer/programmer who understands the importance of marketing, customer satisfaction, responsiveness and UX/UI design?

A designer who knows what the programmers need to do to execute that dramatic design?

20 years of industry experience has allowed me to successfully bridge the gap (and reduced the battle) between client/sales and operations by understanding BOTH ends of that rope in the tug-of-war.

20 years experience in branding, print, web design and front-end development, package design, client-relations, and employee management

Knowledge is power, and experience is even more powerful. Please feel free to take a look at my body of work, which proves that both sides of the same team can (and should) work together to smoothly deliver what the client wants, on time and on budget.

    Working with Rich is a pleasure. I needed to get an ecommerce site up and live in one of the shortest timeframes imaginable. And I needed it to look great. The site is for Martha Stewart’s new line of vitamins, Martha Stewart Essentials. He was able to take the concept and run, pleasing everyone while meeting deadlines and staying in budget. He even took on unexpected development work! I had worked with Rich before when he was on my team at NBTY. I knew he could do great things — and he exceeded expectations. I highly recommend Rich.

    Rich has completed several projects for SMM. He is a very talented designer, programmer and web authority. In addition to doing great work for us, he is very responsive and delivers on our required schedules. I highly recommend Rich for your next project.

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rich many times, starting as colleagues at NBTY and most recently for the redesign of the MS Fitness Challenge website. He has produced excellent work under very tight deadlines, working around the clock when necessary to deliver the best product possible. He is a creative and talented artist who is passionate about his craft and truly cares about the quality of his work. I can still hear the wild enthusiasm in his voice when reviewing initial comps, like a kid who hit a home run – completely pumped and full of pride – psyched by a job well done. That is the guy you want on your team!
