A bit more about me...
Originally from the rural Colorado, my advertising journey began at the tender age of 11. A competition for the local Pepsi bottling plant marked my first triumph, sparking a lifelong passion for art, copy, and carbonated beverages. 
Two college degrees later, I moved to New York City, where I've worked for various clients — all of them way more prestigious than that bottling plant.
Over my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with an amazing array of mentors, partners, directors, photographers, actors, rappers, 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 in Brooklyn with my amazing set designer wife and fluffy dog, Gordon. 

Over thirty years of experience.
