I became an art director appreciating the power of communication, creative problem solving and narrative, through art. It shapes culture and I look at all the work I do through the lens of: am I helping someone OR is this fun and entertaining.
 

So far so good.
 

I'm currently a Freelance Sr. Art Director and I've most recently worked on broadcast, social activations, and branding for Bojangles, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Puma, Hallmark, Lenovo, and Tempurpedic, and a couple of Broadway Musicals.

I love being an Art Director, however, that's only part of the puzzle. Since nothing grows in a vacuum:

I am also a painter, illustrator, mental health advocate, one-time taxidermist, scuba diver, wannabe writer, swimmer, environmentalist, clay sculptor, aspiring yogi, collector of human experiences, storyteller, and talker.

I DISCOVERED A GRAPH I MADE IN THE 8TH GRADE.
 
Switch "Boys" to "The Patriarchy," add "Existential Crisis" to the blank space & honestly, I can't say too much has changed.
