I grew up in Boulder, Colorado and went to the University of Colorado Business School. I was one credit shy of getting a BS in Marketing before leaving to go to art school at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 1994.
After Art Center, I worked as an Art Director at a number of advertising agencies on the west coast including Saatchi & Saatchi SF, Black Rocket, Hal Riney, and Chiat Day LA. In 2004, I moved to Portland to work at Wieden + Kennedy and I've been here ever since. I am currently a Group Creative Director on Verizon.
•Also, I no longer have a beard in case that matters.
