“He was born with a gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad” has always been one of my favorite quotes.
I'm always teaching or learning. So much so that I've got 3 separate degrees in each of the major areas in the creative industry - art direction, writing, film. I've also been fortunate to have worked in over 10 countries, where my fluency in 5 languages have come in handy. I bring global omnichannel expertise to problem-solve for brands ranging from the local corner shop to Fortune 500 leaders. I've been asked to guest-lecture at various universities, have judged award shows around the globe and wrote a monthly column on art/culture for the Chicago Tribune for 5 years. 9 out of 10 people would most likely use the word 'energetic' when describing me. Which comes in handy as I have 3 teenage sons who love sports and expect me to keep up with them.
