Creativity is my first love; branding and design allow me to express that love everyday. I get to blue-sky big ideas, make connections where none previously existed, and solve complex problems with innovative solutions. The biggest perk is that I get to work alongside dreamers and change-makers who are driven to succeed. I am privileged to do what I love, serve great people, and make a living at it.
