Imagination is defined on Wikipedia as “… the faculty of imagining, is the ability to form new images and sensations in the mind that are not perceived through senses …Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience and the learning process.”
Imagination is essential in marketing, design, graphics, multimedia, engineering, communications and many other areas. It is the single greatest element for standing out in a crowd, for creating an invention or new process, for the advancement of science. It’s how we learn and grow as a species.
Think about it. Any website you visit, video you view, communication you remember, viral campaign, catchy song, advertising message, or memorable movie owes its success to imagination. Our imagination inspires us.
It is with this concept that I launched “Imagine8ive (or imaginative for the more literal folks). “ My company strives to find the most unique and relevant way to get your communications heard and remembered.

Client: GSA (General Services Administration of the U.S. Government)
Services Provided: Website development and design within the confines of a proprietary Content Management System (CMS).
GSA serves the entire nation and U.S. Government and they were tasked with providing information on all of the leases they have in their real estate inventory. In accordance with FOIA (the Freedom of Information Act) they were tasked with posting all leases with which they dealt. I helped them to design a website that fit within the confines and scope of their CMS, as well as providing interactive links with their Leasing Desk Guide document.

Restorative justice began as an ancient Native American method of dealing with conflict. It gathers all the members from both sides of a conflict together. They then examine what happened within the conflict, and how it affected all sides. From there, a plan of action is established to bring restitution to any injured party.
Restorative Justice has helped cut recidivism (the relapse back into a behavior) and has opened many dialogs within communities creating a positive path for change. Not only can restorative justice be utilized in criminal situation but it has been very successfully applied to school systems as well. Most notably in Fairfax County Public School Systems.
