Born and raised in Alaska, I left the wilderness and mountains for cornfields and ranch dressing at Bowling Green State University. This is where I first tasted the sweet, sweet nectar of the world of marketing and advertising. Succeeding my Animal House days, I started work in the Seattle Agency scene and have had the privilege of creating strategic campaigns for awesome brands like T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, Caesars Entertainment, Verizon Wireless and Hewlett-Packard. After a decade of sipping Starbucks, wearing flannels, and getting rained on, I decided it was time to move on and make my way to the City of Trees.
I see myself as a professional problem solver and live to create impactful brand experiences. I’m passionate about producing kick-ass work. If my clients are happy, then I’m happy knowing that I’ve done my job right. If there’s ever an issue, I work tirelessly to make it right. I’m also known to be a bit of a team mom around the agency and love to treat my coworkers. It’s your birthday? Boom – you get an ice cream cake. Stepped on a George Foreman Grill while cooking bacon next to your bed? Boom – I’ll pick you up and drive you to work. Oh, and I’m also a big fan of The Office.
I’m lucky to work in a field that I am passionate about and spend a lot of time staying up-to-date on industry trends. When I’m not nerding out on Ad Age, you can find me chasing around my two knucklehead sons, exploring new restaurants with my wife, obsessing over college football (Go Buckeyes!) or pretending I’m John Bonham on the drums.
