“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” –Mark Twain
As a child, I saw my fair share of university towns and sought to further expand my horizons upon college graduation. A stopover in NYC blossomed into an 18-year love affair—working for design firms, agencies and in-house shops. When not in the office, I could be found on the soccer pitch, ski slopes, or exploring the world.
Desiring a change of scenery and closer proximity to family, I bid New York farewell and moved to Decatur, Georgia. There, I contracted with design shops and start-ups while coaching middle school soccer on the side. Eventually, a great job opportunity relocated my family to the Bay Area, where I honed my branding and marketing chops at some of Silicon Valley's most well-known companies.
While California is truly an amazing place, Decatur is our home. I'm now back in the Atlanta area—building brands and running trails when not stuck in traffic. Hit me up.
