That's me, speaking at a Together Digital event.
I'm a proud South Sider and first-generation college grad. I went to Columbia College at night, answered phones at an agency during the day, and worked odd jobs on the weekends—putting my book together in the spaces in between.
This kind of work ethic followed me into the professional world. As a creative lead, I push the teams around me to make the kind of work we can all be proud of. I believe you have to have a strong interest in what makes people tick, and a passion for appealing to them in just the right way...as well as the stick-to-it-iveness that a flawless execution demands from the creative being.
Advertising takes talent, guts, soul, nerve...plus blood, sweat and tears.
