MY BACKGROUND

When people ask me who I am, I tell them that I am a mix of everything. Those small dreams I had as a kid wandering through museums looking at art, laughing at commercials with my parents, and writing short fiction stories in class has lead me here. It started out as complete confusion between being a starving artist to sitting myself down and listing out the qualities of a storytelling, paint splattering, foodie who loved sports. Advertising was the perfect mix of what I searched for.
