Thanks for visiting

I'm a creative who loves traveling and hates jet lag. I've been fortunate enough to gain experience in several different cities including Seattle, San Francisco and Dubai. I've decided to give my passport a break and am currently working as a Senior Copywriter at Wunderman in Minneapolis, MN.

I love meeting new people and talking about new ideas. Drop me a line if you want to chat about any work or exchange some travel stories.
