Hi! 😀 I’m glad you’re here!

My name is Michael and I’m a Finger Lakes-based freelance Content Creator & Web Producer. I’m passionate about storytelling, photography, and being your brand champion.

At it’s heart, Pixelpunk Creative is a content creation company. I love making something out of nothing and I love making stuff that matters. It’s both an art and a discipline that I’ve been crafting and cultivating for over 20 years as a freelancer.

Pixelpunk has been my tiny little design studio since 1999, where I’ve been providing a broad range of consulting services, including: graphic design and branding, web design, and search engine marketing.

I have been actively involved with the Web since 1996 and have won a few design awards along the way. It’s very unique in that the studio embraces and nurtures both sides of innovation… the creative and the technical.

My main objective is to deliver clear and substantial value to your company, address key business issues, and improve your long-term online business goals.

Interested in working with me on a project? Get in touch!
