As long as I can remember, I've had a passion for expanding my skillset to continue opening new, exciting doors. At 16, I started with Adobe Photoshop and Avid Pro Tools. These two softwares, while incredibly useful are also incredibly complex.

But, why?
For me, it's been about a lot of things. When you're young, you can't afford to pay someone $150/hr (or more) to record your music...so you learn how. You can't afford to pay someone to design your album art...so you learn how. You can't afford to pay an agency to build your website...so you learn how.

And sometimes, in that whole mess - you find something you didn't know you were looking for....
Passion. I do what I do because I genuinely love doing it. I love helping brands find their voice, helping creators find their brand, and helping businesses find the technology stacks they need to operate as efficiently as possible.

I love design, I love technology, and most of all I love lifting people up. "A rising tide lifts all boats"
I've worked as a Sales Engineer with over 6000 clients, a Graphic Designer for bands, small businesses, artists, and makers alike. I've produced audio and video Live Broadcasts for Guitar Companies, charities, and podcasts. I've led ERP // eCommerce data integrations, implemented security systems, emergency rebuilt servers after data attacks, and much, much more.
I've spend over a decade learning as much as I can and meeting as many people as I can to always have a solution to every problem as they pop up, and I'd love to speak with you about your project and learn how I can be the missing cog in your machine.

Web Design

Web Design

Whether it's your portfolio website, your eCommerce marketplace, or your services business, your website represents your purpose. It's the face of your brand and your direct line to your customer.

User Interaction & Experience Design is important. Your website should teach the user how to use it while they're using it and take them on the journey you want them to take. Not only can I help you architect that, but we can take time to understand your customers needs and how to make it convert.

Graphic Design

In 2022, your identity is more visual than ever. Customers can sense "sketchy" feeling websites and ads more than ever. It's important that you not only have something that looks nice, but also something that connects and vibes with your customer.

From product catalogs to banner ads, I can help bring your ideas into reality.

Photography

Photography isn't about what camera you use, or what settings. It isn't about what you can do in your editing software, or the latest and greatest tech and updates...Photography is about capturing the moments you want to remember. It's about giving your brand the right look and feel. It's about transporting the viewer into the story you're trying to tell them.It doesn't matter if you shoot on an iPhone or a Sony a1 - what matters is the result.

Video

Video

Whether you need a simple, clean, talking head video, a flashy product hero video, or an animated slideshow showing off your product or businesses best features, together we can make something beautiful.

Technology

Technology

Choosing the right tech stack for your company or building can be difficult. Employee Workstations, Servers, Networks, Security Systems, Web Hosting, and so much more - it's a lot to learn and juggle. I can help simplify your decision making and make sure your tech not only works for you, but works together so that you can work towards your goals as efficiently as possible.

Working with Mike is always a pleasure

"Working with Mike is always a pleasure. He is prompt, organized, and best of all for the sake of work he's in, he's innovative. Mike has helped me take one of my clients and increase their annual revenue by 5X from the previous year thanks to his knowledge in Shopify, Klaviyo, MailChimp, and Bold apps. While there are many people I have worked with, I always bring my web / eCommerce related work to Mike first and I suggest you to do the same."

"The work really upped our quality standards"

"After struggling with video creators for some time, we found Mike and enlisted his help with some instructional content for our website. His edits were clear, informative, and guided the viewer on an easy-to-follow journey to installation of the part in question. The work really upped our quality standards for video moving forward, and he was incredibly easy to work with on revisions and delivery."

"Can not recommend working with him enough."

"Kenway not only turned around the entire experience of what it was like to work with Marshall Home, but helped us develop new software integrations, technology and workflows to cut down on needed manpower both in the front office and our main shipping warehouse, saving us a ton of time and money. Can not recommend working with him enough."

"Working with Kenway has been a blessing"

"Working with Kenway has been a blessing. He's able to take so much off of our workload when we need him, which is great in the middle of a year where finding and hiring talented people has proven to be difficult. We've began entrusting him with designing our new websites and promotional material and I can't wait to see where it goes from here.
