Philosophy:

Advertising is the ultimate form of storytelling. An ad can make people think, or laugh, or cry. But what I find most rewarding about making ads is when they make people care. My passion is always to be better, which has led me from being a designer, into rebooting my career as art director at Job Propulsion Lab.
