HI, I'M RICK
AND I MAKE STUFF.

I'm a freelance designer, developer, maker and consultant. I hang out at the intersection of creativity & commerce, consume copious amounts of coffee and build stuff that helps connect people and things together.

MY STORY/

Hi, I'm Rick and I make a lot of stuff - from digital stuff all the way down to a delicious cup of coffee. In addition to countless client projects, I focus on stuff that can help connect people and things together in various ways. I'm a firm believer in collaboration over competition, I love to work with others who believe in creating better stuff together.


When I'm not making stuff, I'm chasing my four kids and spending time with my wife in Regina, SK Canada.


I believe in the journey, not the destination, and making stuff just happens to be my fuel for the journey.

SOME STUFF I'VE WRITTEN /

WHY?

If you’re like me, it’s likely you’ve thought about this question at some point. I mean it’s really easy to justify what we do with responses like “I need to pay bills” or “I need to provide for my family”. But one thing I’ve realized is paying bills and providing for my family is a result of what I do – not the why behind it.

STOP READING ABOUT ZUCK

I’ll be honest, I used to read all the stories. Zuck and Facebook’s billon dollar IPO. Branson and his private island. Musk basically being the equivalent of a real-life Tony Stark. They were “the guys”. All my start-up aspirations were based on the premise of coming up with the next million (or billion) dollar idea. The next Facebook. The next Uber. The next Airbnb. If I didn’t believe it was going to be a homerun, I wouldn’t do it.

YOU DON'T NEED A #@*&% WEBSITE

Many a web person spend a fair portion of their day trying to convince people that they need a website. They’ll write blog post after blog post and ebook after ebook telling you all the reasons to get one. They’ll tell you it’s 2016 and your customers are all online. They’ll tell you about the benefits of SEO (search engine optimization) and Google juice. And while I completely agree with all these points, I’m here to tell you that you don’t need one.
