About Me

I'm a freelance Creative Director with a background as a hybrid creative. Throughout my career I've worked as an advertising creative (CD/AD/CW) focusing on integrated advertising campaigns and extreme cat herding. In addition to my work as a creative, I teach courses in Advertising and Design at Parsons. When I have spare time I like to ride motorcycles.
