Creative Director. Art Director. Adgeek.

I help people solve problems. My background is in combining communications, storytelling, design, and technology to create authentic, relevant experiences in traditional, non-traditional and digital spaces.

My strength has always been my ability to communicate strategy through the use of stunning visual solutions. My attention to detail in both concept and execution has earned me some of the most coveted awards in the industry from organizations like the One Show, Communication Arts, Graphis, Lurzer’s Archive and the Milwaukee Adworkers' 99 Show. I believe in the power of a great idea, flawlessly executed.

My experience ranges across multiple categories in B-to-C and B-to-B spaces and my body of work includes campaigns for AT&T, MasterCraft Boats, Alliance Laundry Systems and a wide variety of non-profits.

I'm a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, an accomplished photographer and have guest lectured at my Alma Mater, Marquette and MIAD before joining Jeff Ericksen in co-founding the Milwaukee Portfolio School, dedicating to helping young creatives become better conceptual thinkers and get jobs in advertising.

When not at work, I can usually be found playing outside - photographing, volunteering, adventure-traveling and in general, trying to live life to the fullest. Read Less
