My name is Michael Clark and I own a small digital media company in Sacramento called – naturally enough, Starfish.
Why Starfish, well it all started during a diving trip in the Bahamas with my daughter Ellen. Work had been stressing me out so we decided to take a vacation and get away from it all. That trip proved to be a pivotal moment in my life.
Ellen was only 10 years old but could already dive deeper than I could and one day she brought a beautiful pink starfish to the surface. She was so proud as she handed it to me and I filled up when she said – this is for taking such good care of us Daddy. At that moment I decided to give up the stressful life I had built and take more time to enjoy the real pleasures in life – like enjoying my kids growing up.
But, what to do? Well, the answer was simple. I decided to start a web design/marketing and digital media company, drawing on my background as a graphics artist and creative director.
The end result is this website – I hope you find it interesting and engaging. Its a labor of love at the moment – I’m also working on a side project with a creative agency called Azzurro Blu who help me pay the bills for the time being.
