I like big ideas.
As a punk kid, those ideas manifested themselves in overly ambitious plans for books, stick figure animations, songs, comics, and countless doodles scrawled across my student handbooks.
Now I put that sh*t to use.
Now, I use those ideas to give brands a unique voice and solve business problems. Those ideas aren’t alone, though.
Meet the bonus skills.
After college, I landed a job managing a creative team at a small ad agency. Having to wear many hats, I've gained experience in project and account management, art direction, copywriting, website maintenance – just flat out a lot of stuff.
And now, for my next trick…
This exposure to many aspects of the ad business has stocked me up with a baseline of strategy, creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, and leadership skills. Besides using this foundation to grow as an art director, I strive to build my peers up and foster creative workplaces where we can be, in the words of Todd Henry, prolific, brilliant, and healthy.
