I'm fortunate to be able to spend my days working with the fantastic Newfangled team to discover new ways of planning and delivering the greatest conversion-focused websites we can imagine for our clients.
The way I see it I have three jobs. My first job is to make sure Newfangled is the kind of company that attracts and retains top talent. My second job is to develop and maintain the right kind of client relationships so that we're able to do this work we love for as long as possible. My third job is to work with the Newfangled team and our clients to make sure that we're offering the right strategic and technological solutions. If we've got the right people, the right clients, and we're creating sites that have a significant impact on our client's business, things are good.

Chris and I have decided to finally act on an idea we've been batting around for years. Starting today, we're going to regularly publish short, unrehearsed video conversations that touch on whatever topic interests us at the moment. more
