I was born in the backwoods of rural Virginia and spent most of my early years embarrassing my parents. I moved to Boston and graduated with a filmmaking degree from Emerson College in 2001. After a variety of horrible jobs in New York, I started a web development company, SL8works, in 2002. The name was cool back then, I swear. I taught myself how to code and design and photograph and bill my clients and profit from the internet. 

In 2006 I closed shop and went to VCU Brandcenter. Two years and a grad degree later, I moved back to New York and started working at Publicis, then Translation, then MRY. I've made TV, print, microsites, social stuff, digital stuff, OOH, apps...as long as I'm making stuff, I'm happy.
