My Entire Life Story

I was raised in the Midwest and educated at the finest public university in Kansas. I'm currently a freelance Creative Director / Art Director based in New York City. In the past I've worked on brands like Snickers, AT&T, MasterCard, Lowe's, and Bacardi.

My work has received industry awards from Cannes, the One Show, the Art Directors Club, the London International Awards, the CLIOs, the New York Festivals, and the D&AD Annual.
