I started my ad career as a photographer. I’ve been published and paid, but at the end of the day, I needed more. Art direction was the answer. Fast forward 10 years. I live in Atlanta with my amazing wife, son and dog. If you ask me whether I’ve won a Vanilla Ice look-alike competition, I’d have to say “no comment,” but I can tell you that the prize was awesome. And it looks even awesomer on my mantel. But more importantly, I love to create memorable and lasting projects that make people feel, remember and act.
