I'm a record-producer-turned-creative-advertiser. Learned discipline, execution, and follow-through from my WWII Marine grandfather. Likes whiteboards, the right words, rhythms, fighter jets, and Oblique Strategies. I work hard and don’t worry much. I conclude listening makes you a better writer and adaptability is your only security. I use the caffeine wisely. I think standing up, embrace struggles, thrive in chaos, and believe in love.
