In December 2016 I published a book for digital creatives titled LAUNCH IT - 300+ things I’ve learned as a Designer, Developer and Creative Director.

For over 15 years I have talked with fellow designers, developers and digital creatives who were asking for advice on how to launch their design careers. As a Creative Director, I love mentoring people on topics like work ethic, finding inspiration, creative process, skill acquisition, how to get a job, handling clients, agency life, freelance, self-promotion and work life balance. I scoured through years of old emails, interviews, presentations and conversations for any advice that I had given others. Some of those findings are loosely organized into this book. My hope is that something within these pages helps motivate, direct, focus or prepare you in some way to launch your design career and set you on a pathway towards achieving your dreams. It's your life & career. Launch It.

Since then, the book has made it's way into the hands of designers & developers on 6 continents, in 51 countries and 38 states in the USA.
