The Nicest
Motherf***er in
Advertising
I’m a creative director and art director specializing in brand campaigns across all media. I prefer the term “kind,"  but "The Most Kind Motherf***er in Advertising" doesn’t really have the same ring.

I was raised in rural Colorado, which probably explains my good-nature, and I produced my first advertisement in 6th grade when I won a competition for the local Pepsi bottling plant. Not to brag, but my concept kicked the crap out of anything the other creatives at West Middle School were serving up that year. Once I tasted that victory, I was hooked on the ad game.
Since moving to the big city I have worked for variety of clients, all of them way bigger than the Grand Junction Pepsi bottling plant. Ever heard of a little place called Walmart? I thought so.

I’ve also had the opportunity to work with an amazing array of directors, photographers, actors, dogs, cats, babies, an alligator, a tiger, a giraffe, a vulture, a skunk, an animatronic dolphin, and Ellen Degeneres. Ellen may have been the most difficult to work with if I’m being honest.
I currently live with my amazing wife and fluffy dog in Brooklyn, NY. 
And that’s the end of this bio. If it feels a little anti-climactic it’s because I’m not done yet.
