I'm that digital unicorn you're always hearing about. The guy with all the tools and the ability to execute. From hardcore direct marketing for startups all the way through to branding and design for brands and big agencies. I've seen it all, and done most of it.
I realized at a young age (relatively young anyhow - 19) that I wasn't going to get what I needed and wanted from school. So I dropped out and entered the real world, carving my own path through the marketing industry, sharpening a wide array of skills along the way. I've worked at, with, and helped build startups (Pangea Media, CustomMade, etc), run departments in-house at major brands (Samuel Adams), and held officer level roles within large agencies (VP, Experience Planning at Hill Holliday). Most recently, I ran my own creative and strategy shop called Heart (which is still going strong).
