Originally hailing from Orrville, a small town in Ohio better known as Jelly City USA, I was always an
ambitiously creative kid. Whether trying to construct a bobsled out of tin cans in my basement,
sketching out logo ideas for my beloved Cleveland Browns or designing the next prototype Indycar on
my science homework, there was never much doubt I would find a way to make a career in creativity.

Having spent years perfecting both my endless doodles and my craft as a design thinker, I now help
develop creative strategies for some of the biggest names in the sports, entertainment, restaurant
and hospitality industries...including the Browns! A graphic designer by trade, I have expanded my
professional acumen across the range of creative disciplines through a decade+ as a professional.
Serving as the Creative Director for industry-leading Levy Restaurants, I have successfully navigated
the billion-dollar company’s efforts across all creative disciplines from architecture to illustration and everything in between

In addition to my role as Creative Director, I also love expanding my creativity through passions for
both photography and writing. Beyond a hobby, my photos have been featured in several prominent
publications such as USA Today and Food & Wine Magazine. As an author, I am currently in the editing phase of my first literary work, an autobiography titled “The 33rd Chapter, Another year on the brink
of Inner Peace and Parenthood.” Detailing a harrowing journey back from two late pregnancy losses,
the book journals a one-year span through trials and tribulations of IVF, complex genetic testing and
balancing a demanding career in attempt to finally conceive a healthy child with wife Mandy.
