Who I am
A versatile, visual storyteller.
Nah. (Well, maybe.) It’s because nothing is my favorite thing. I love the thought of starting from nothing—a blank document that becomes a meaningful graphic, a website built from scratch (like this one), or a fresh Moleskine notebook that will soon fill up with sketches, which become storyboards, which become animated stories.
Oh, still reading?
Okay.When my friends and I formed clubs in our backyards as kids, I was most concerned with what our club was called and what our logo would look like. I got my hands on a bootlegged copy of Photoshop, and I decided that must be what heaven is like. I started making T-shirt designs for every occasion. Shirt designs became web designs, logos became brands, and graphic design paved the way to motion graphics, and here I am—making a career out of making things look good, work well, and get the right messages across.
I’ve also always loved (read: been obsessed with) writing. I didn’t think of it as “copywriting” growing up, of course, but that creative outlet has always been in my veins. I wrote some Narnia knockoffs in grade school and never looked back.
When I’m not immersing myself in the design world, I’m probably watching great athletes play the sports I played much less impressively in high school, watching my kids be awesome at whatever, or annoying the hell out of my wife by preemptively blurting out quotes during movies in a hopeless effort to prove how smart I am. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Now, please tell me you aren’t still reading this. It’s time to go out and create some cool sh—stuff.
