Hi there.

Conceptual Art Director with gargantuan ideas

Work is led by logic.

 

Artistry

Clean aesthetic. The devil’s in the details.

 

When I'm upset, I like to write very thorough, beautifully crafted emails with bullet points, type hierarchy and sub-headings to help others understand said upset-ness. I like it when someone compliments my emails writing skills.

I also write poetry and rants.

 

Relatable/Engaging/Memorable Advertising

People forget what we said, but not how we made them feel.

I benchmark great ads by whether or not they made me ugly cry. 

 

In my spare time

I take far too many pictures of my dog.

Always learning and re-learning software to prevent Old Fart Syndrome.

Reading Harry Potter for the n’th time, where 'n' stands for not open to judgment.
