About Me

I love creating new ideas and artwork to make a brand more compelling. Born in Savannah Georgia, I have spent most of my life developing different creative outlets. I attended the Savannah College of Art and Design, where I began my education in the field of advertising design. After my junior year at SCAD, I completed an internship for Cartoon Network which led to a freelance relationship with their creative department. After college I accepted an internship with Crispin Porter + Bogusky and shortly after was offered a position at Blue Sky Agency.

At Blue Sky I became increasingly involved as a primary designer and eventually an Art Director for campaign pitches. Within my first year at Blue Sky, I had successfully sold designs for clients including the Atlanta Thrashers, the Atlanta Hawks, the Woodruff Arts Center, Turner Network Sales, and Blue Sky Agency’s rebranding. 12 years later I still maintain a freelance relationship with Cartoon Network, Blue Sky and other agencies in San Francisco and Atlanta.

Fun Fact! Aside from my career in advertising, I also worked as a soloist for Cirque Du Soleil, and competed on Season 14 of America’s Got Talent.
