Creative Direction | Art Direction | Illustration | Copywriting
For as long as I can remember, all I've wanted to do in life is create stuff. It didn't matter what medium it was in. My early life was spent drawing, painting, sculpting, etc. In college I studied Fine Art. In my last year of school I got into graphic design on these things called "computers." Using these "computers" I was able to start a career as a graphic designer. Eventually, I ended up in advertising. It's a great gig. It allows me to be creative, to draw, to write, to solve problems, to work insanely long hours...
I started my career in 1999, working at a few smaller companies in Chicago before joining DDB in 2005 and then finally landing at Leo Burnett in 2009. I've worked on every medium known to man and all for some of the largest brands in the world including McDonald's, Wrigley's, Allstate, Nintendo, Firestone and Kellogg's to name a few.
