"I want to do something splendid before I go into my castle, - something heroic or wonderful, that won’t be forgotten after I’m dead. I don’t know what, but I’m on the watch for it, and mean to astonish you all, some day.”
Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

Work Experience

Hink Creations

Principal, Creative Director

At its core, Hink Creations is a husband-wife team, specializing in projects relating to sight and sound. We believe that our clients' projects are too important to be left unseen, whether they exist on the pages of a notepad, the strings of a guitar, or the depths of a hard drive. One of our primary focuses over the years has been to nurture, individual-by-individual, a powerful network of freelance musicians, designers, photographers, and developers to ensure that your projects are touched only by people who dedicate their lives to their craft.
