I like ideas. I like problem-solving. I like ideas that solve problems.

I know a lot about guitars, and a little too much about bass guitars. 

I transitioned from boyhood to adulthood by way of 80’s hair metal and 90’s grunge.
 
I love being a dad.

I enjoy cramming my brains with the kind of information most people wouldn’t consider information.

I can recite the copy of AXE’s “Fear No Susan Glenn” on demand.

I work best with a rollerball pen and a stack of 11X17 paper. 

I came to advertising after a good ten years of playing in rock bands.

I think advertising is a lot like playing in rock bands.
