Who are you?

I’m a Los Angeles-based creative who enjoys breakfast for dinner, a brisk walk around the block, and CVS’s finest wines. When I’m not doing any of those things, I work as an ACD that specializes in film production for broadcast and digital stories. But I also handle print, editorial design and social campaigns.


I began my advertising career at Energy BBDO in Chicago where I started as an intern. My partner and I were hired on after as juniors to keep messing around. After managing global brands and a number of small in-house productions, I moved to FCB in Chicago to focus on B2B brands.


Prior to all of this, I came from a background in journalism, writing and editing, that nicely rounds out my art director tendencies of neurotic organization and one-word emails.
