Mike and Kim have been designing, writing and producing interfaces for over 20 years. Together they own and operate Houghton Interactive as a freelance business, making their home in Tallahassee, Florida.
Mike currently serves as the User Experience Lead for WeatherSTEM but spent his early years designing and authoring CD-ROMs and kiosks for clients like GlaxoSmithKline and BellSouth. In the late 90s, with a master’s degree from Florida State University focusing on new media communication, Mike’s work shifted almost entirely to designing for the Web. After the first of their four children was born, Mike became an early-bird. He currently starts work days in his home office with a fresh cup of coffee in hand, helping small businesses and non-profits with their websites. Some of his more recent clients include Center Point Church and Big Bend Habitat for Humanity. From time to time Mike teaches as an Adjunct Professor at FSU, and in 2006 he founded Refresh Tallahassee – a Meetup group of local web designers and developers that has since grown to over 500 members.

Our interns are ridiculously creative, and when they are not waiting in the car pickup line at school they are likely to be found at the kitchen table with paper and colored pencils. Actually, they are more likely to be playing Minecraft, but they still enjoy drawing.
We're currently all booked up, but we're always interested in talking or may have a referral in mind.
