in a nutshell.

As a multidisciplinary art director, my work takes many forms but is most at home in photography and filmmaking. For the better part of the last decade, I have worked with big brands and small businesses to craft social campaigns, print catalogs and editorial, brand videos, visual identities and more.

I like to get my hands dirty and be involved in as much of the process as possible. Having spent years both behind the camera and at the desk putting in the final touches, I love being involved in as much of the process as I can. . 

I believe the best work comes about when relationships are strong and the playlist is solid.

When I am not working, you'll find me watching soccer (Arsenal or all things MLS), painting, or reading magazines.
