View my Resume

My favorite descriptor on this page is decent human being. That's a tough quality to have in this business and I think I've done pretty good in acquiring that trait.
I try to do this by listening, thinking, and collaborating.
It's not always easy, that's why I try and if it works you can see it reflect in the process and quality of the work.

I don't believe that title dictates behavior, at least not in most people. By trade I'm technically a graphic designer, but I also love to write, craft strategic POVs and insights, present work, form client and partner relationships, manage budgets, build teams, and even create stories out of presentation decks. I love stories the most, so it only makes sense that I present work that way. I like the reaction on people's faces when they actually understand the concepts my teams present, it's very rewarding. But I take it a step further by hunting for great stories in the cultural space. I co-founded VOYD, with my partner Jeremy Hodges, to write about personal experiences and speak to others about impactful and inspiring stories taking place in the world today.

Everything I do, in and out of agency life, comes full circle as my ventures all influence each other. I use these experiences to grow, collaborate with others, and impact my contributions to every project I touch.
