About

Hello! Born and raised Chicagolander here. And a recent Omaha transplant. My work is grounded in the arts to create the best human experience. You’ll find my passion at the intersection of design and communication, understanding the how and why to produce things that enable people to broadcast their story, product or service. I’ve had the honor of working in diverse industries from pharma to film, software to sizzle reels, woodworking to wine.
