It starts in Austin >
I was performing with a few dance companies (stages not poles) and freelancing for agencies with acronyms, like GSD&M. After several years and many dear friends later, I relocated to New York to work at Modem NY (now Publicis Modem). We pitched, we built, we won stuff. To name a few: Snickers, Delta, Christie’s, Enterprise, Heineken & others. Meanwhile, I’d help out friends with copy or creative. Then it became lucrative.

Enter freelance life >
Since I’ve worked at NYC agencies like MDC Partners, Publicis, Geometry Global, Pompei A.D., R/GA, Huge, Razorfish, Digitas, as well as for client-side, boutique shops, design firms, fashion houses, and inside the belly of the giant lesson learner world of start-ups. I’ve had the privilege of working closely with global brands like Skype, Nike, Target, and L’Oréal to name a few. I added “perma-lancer” to my vocabulary, and more acronyms like CD or ACD, depending on the agency structure. Now, titles aside, I still like to swing a hammer—write and come up with ideas.

As a storyteller slash >
creative strategist, content conspirator, script writer, name generator, tag line operator slash design disciple, I’m interested in crafting experiences that work for people. No matter what the medium, I approach the work with a passion for the problem. Problems are good. They drive ideas to work everyday.

If you have a project that you’d like to talk about, we should e-meet.
