“All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning.”

-Albert Camus

The realization that I had the ability to view life through a creative lens came to me early in life. This ability to stare at a blank space and imagine the infinite possibilities has been what fuels me every moment since. These days, I spend my time creating marketing materials and strategies for organizations, businesses and individuals. When I’m not busy doing that, I design productivity tools to help other creatives manage their projects, am a member of several professional creative organizations and like to put pen to paper in hopes of becoming a novelist.
