About me: professionally
Over the years, I've had the pleasure of working with clients from countless industries, including many Fortune 100 brands. Put simply, I like solving problems. Sure, I love a good punny headline, but finding a clever solution with a great team is much more rewarding. Whether it's branding, web, experiential, or any medium in between.

About me: personally
When I'm not at work, you can usually find me somewhere in St. Louis. Though I try to squeeze in as much travel as possible. I'm slowly working my way through all the beauty our National Parks have to offer.
My hobbies are all over the place. I'm a very amateur photographer and rallycross driver.
And when I'm done with all of that, I'm always on the hunt for new restaurants and dishes in and around the city. I grew up cooking at home and eventually earned the Chef title at a few local dives. With the time left over, I try to spend it reading. From real estate to mezcal cocktails, my curiosity and interests run deep.
