I like ideas, problem-solving, and making hits.
I love family, bass guitars, and jazz.
I take pleasure in the collection of information, and Nike sneakers.
I work best with a rollerball pen and a stack of 11X17 paper.  
I came to advertising after a long decade of playing in rock bands.
I think advertising is a lot like playing in rock bands. 
I believe we can make hits together.
