Born and raised right outside Chicago - from and early age, I was taught that with hard work, determination, and a willingness to learn, you can achieve whatever you put your mind to. To me, being a maker has always extended beyond advertising. Whether it was figuring how to play instruments, taking photos on epic adventures, building robots from the ground up, tinkering on my car, or woodworking with my dad; it’s all a part of being creative and striving to build something great or to make something better. It just so happens that the same qualities work well in advertising.
So what all do I do? Well... I art direct, design, photograph, video, construct, craft, and do whatever it takes to make a concept come to life. I always think about the underlying strategy behind a message, figure out the story we're trying to tell, and I never shy away from trying something new.
