Psst, here's how to say my name.
What can be said about me that hasn’t been said about Harry Potter?
Magical. Easy to read. Dead if it weren’t for his two best friends.
But I digress.
I first worked in advertising during high school dressed as Tony The Tiger for Leo Burnett’s Christmas party. 
I retired from that and found myself in a media agency. Realizing I was proud of crafting clever emails and not spiffy spreadsheets, I changed course. I missed bringing brands to life like Tony did.
Nowadays, I like to write more than just clever emails. I want to connect people with brands in ways that make them think, laugh, or sometimes even cry (in a good way). 
My dream is to shoot an ad in space. But I’ll settle for my mom sending me my own work asking if I’ve “seen this cool video”.
If you can help make either of those happen, I’d love to chat.

Fun Facts:
- My first time hiking was to Everest Base Camp. Go big or go home, right?
- My first time camping was in Mongolia. I was on horseback and at one point may have accidentally invaded Russia. It was also my first time invading another country.
- I've interviewed at a spy agency. Twice. The fact that I'm willing to put that online is probably why I didn't get the job.
- I've slept overnight inside an IKEA. I also tried to start a pillow fight but it was an "insurance liability", or something.
