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. I live at the intersection of design and communication, understanding the how and why to produce experiences that enable people to broadcast their story, product or service. I healthily obsess about circling back to measure effectiveness and fine tune. I’ve had the honor of working in diverse arenas from pharma to film, software to sizzle reels, woodworking to wine.
