As an Army brat, I grew up in a bunch of different cities, absorbing diverse cultures and perspectives along the way. I understood early on, that any subject can generate infinite viewpoints. This served me well as a fine arts and design student and it has served me well in my 20+ career in advertising—which has included stints in Ireland, Germany, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. My unique background and experience in agencies around the world helps me offer uncommon solutions for some of the world’s most famous brands.

After working in BBDO Dublin as the creative lead on Guinness, Budweiser and Carlsberg, I moved back home and currently I’m a Creative Director at McCann, New York, leading the global brands of Lockheed Martin, Qualcomm, Microsoft and State Street Global Advisors (I was one of the lead creators behind “Fearless Girl.”)

When I’m not taking on big brand challenges, I’m an active board member and creative director for the Red Circle Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps wounded soldiers and family members of the fallen.

And though I love advertising and volunteering, my true joy comes from raising my two boys alongside my endlessly patient wife.
