Hello there! I’ve worked as a Creative Director/Copywriter at some of the best agencies on the east coast, west coast, Toronto, and Chicago, where I now live. Prior to nomadic ad life, I grew up in Richmond, VA where I went to school at VCU and stuck around afterward for the Brandcenter. I’ve been a pharmacist’s assistant, a valet, a car lot guy, a graffiti writer, a hardcore/punk rock kid, and a skateboarder, which I have since become again against pretty much all logic. I’m a dad to a preschooler and a husband to a Canadian. I will do my best to make some great work and make your life easier when you bring me in as a freelancer. Thanks for reading and have a great day. Scroll down for some photos and my full resume.
