Long story, short.
At the beginning of 2019, I decided to take a giant leap. To leave my job at an agency I loved and to leave the city I built my life and career in. To push myself outside of my comfort zone, explore creative possibilities, and build something new. That jump has allowed me to freelance with some amazing clients across the country in Los Angeles, then Chicago, now landing in my favorite borough of the city that never sleeps, Brooklyn, New York.
Back in Michigan, for nearly eight years I was a creative director for a multi-disciplined, multi-award-winning agency, Fairly Painless Advertising. Executing concept and strategy-based ideas across nearly every screen, surface, device, and dimension imaginable. Collaborating with brands that included Herman Miller, HopCat, Staples, Aetna, Mazda, Toyota, SpartanNash, Greenleaf Trust, Amway, Haworth, Johnson Controls, Visteon and YanFeng, and countless others.
I am currently providing freelance consulting, creative direction and design for marketing & advertising, UI/UX, motion, experiential/interactive for medium to Fortune 50 companies, agencies and production studios. I am always open to new opportunities and am actively exploring what’s next.
Outside of my day job, you can find me anywhere where the culture is; traveling, exploring cities, shooting photos, trying new food spots, seeing live shows, hunting down the perfect pair of kicks, or let’s be honest; creeping on Insta. Want to see some other random facts about me?
