hey there.


I’m a writer/marketing guy currently based in Lawrence, Kansas and hailing from the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky. 

I found my way to a career in marketing the usual way. By moving to the middle of the country, interviewing communes for a religious studies master's, making a career 180° in my mid-20s, then landing in a marketing grad program. (Cliché, I know.)

I like to dabble. I like to experiment. I like digging deep into problems and uncovering interesting solutions. Most of all, I like making exciting things with good people. My aim is simple: Strive to find the right idea, go beyond what’s expected and have fun doing it.


Off the clock, I enjoy camping, hiking & travel, overpriced bourbon, slightly pretentious movies, brewery patio lounging and other very millennial activities.


Let’s make something cool together.
