Hey. I'm a creative director / designer / writer / brand strategist currently serving as Group Creative Director at 160over90.

Born in Texas, raised on the smell of turpentine and lettering enamel in my Pop's sign shop, I'm currently hanging a hat in Philadelphia. I love what I do. I love helping brands and the folks that lead them find what they're looking for. I've done it at 3,500 person practices and tiny studios. For fortune 100 companies, 75,000 person festivals, industry award shows, and startups operating from a single desk. For tv studios, music services for artists, and podcasts with 5.6 million listeners a month. For hospitality groups and hospitals. For night clubs, and burger joints, farmers, and grocery stores. For friends, for family, and for myself.

If you want to chat about a creative opportunity, or about how many brain cells can be killed growing up in a paint shop, don't hesitate to reach out.
