I had the opportunity to work with Brian (DesignB Studios) on our corporate web project. Brian was a consummate professional. From the project conception to completion, Brian was an advocate for the project and was able to view things from every perspective, business (micro and macro views), and from a long-term global view. His level of service, initiative and true love for what he does, really shone through. I wholeheartedly recommend Brian, his team and DesignB Studios for all web-development and related projects! - Dr. Patrice J. Stewart

Carpe diem. Seize the day! Seize every opportunity. Seize every moment. Seize every experience. Of course, nothing in life is free. Anything worth having takes a little bit of 'umph' to acquire. But it's not unattainable. Carpe diem!
When I was young, my mother once caught me sweeping crumbs from the kitchen floor under the refrigerator. She shook her head and said, "The lazy man works the hardest". I didn't 'get it' right away. It was many years later when the lightbulb finally came on. It's these simple lessons I was taught earlier in life that have made me the person I am today. I'm so thankful!
I think of myself as a chameleon. I tend to mold myself into whatever I need to be for the situation at hand. I'm a problem solver, a perfectionist, a peacemaker, a person that's often amazed at all life has to offer. I feel wise, but know I still have much to learn. I'm on a journey. I do hope we meet along the way!
