I'm a creative director based in Bloomington, Illinois.

From the moment my friends and I made our first "movie" in Jr. High (it was super weird), I knew I wanted to create things for a living. And for the past 11 years, that's pretty much what I've been doing. 

Since then, I've learned to enjoy being in over my head on projects and life in general – because those moments bring out the best in me – regardless of how uncomfortable I am. Outside of that, I love Jesus – He's changed my life and I'm forever grateful for His undeserved goodness towards me. I also enjoy making people laugh at inappropriate times as well as telling and listening to compelling stories. 

On a side note, if you go to my Instagram page, it's basically a million photos of my wife, daughters and coffee. Fair warning.
