I’M AN ASSOCIATE CREATIVE DIRECTOR,
ART DIRECTOR AT VMLY&R KANSAS CITY.
I was born and bred in Detroit, MI. After a fairly forgettable collegiate soccer career, I spent my early creative years at Doner working on Fiat, JBL, Harman Kardon, and Minute Maid.
In 2013, I joined the team at Leo Burnett Detroit to work on several brands including the United Way, Chevrolet, GMC and Buick. It developed my leadership skills as person and as a Creative. And over those five years, I also discovered two new passions: car photography and filmmaking.
Nothing beats problem-solving.
Over the course of my first three years at Leo Burnett, I was lucky enough to have two spots run during the Super Bowl (Buick and Chevy). Aside from working on broadcast, my primary role was leading the creative and the photography on GMC's social media accounts. I was proud to be a part of the core team that kept the GMC business in Detroit against all odds. We nailed the brief by delivering the campaign line Like A Pro.
So, you’re still reading… I’ll throw in a random fun fact: I spent a majority of my childhood in Virginia. During that time, my Father and I visited countless Civil War battlefields. From then on I’ve been obsessed with history, archeology… and good solid ghost stories.
