About me

From right-brained skills like photography and video production to left-brained skills like SEO, content marketing, and analytics, I’ve had the luxury of learning many different skills over my years. I am autodidactic in my skills set, in that many of the skills I’ve learned have been self-taught or through professional opportunities. I’ve held a variety of jobs since I was 16 years old: from unloading trucks, selling shoes, and selling beer at NFL games, to executing highly profitable SEO campaigns and working in a world class photography studio. I’m very well rounded, to say the least. I am currently working as a creative services producer and editor for Graham Media, but always open to collaborating on personal creative endeavors with new people.



“Yea, we actually need to swoop up his boy, like we swooped up Jillian, because his shit looks really cool. I guess he does like graphics for the local news or something? He’s super proficient… and efficient.”
