I grew up in the land of Princess Kay of the Milky Way in Minnesota where faces are carved in butter for the State Fair. I honed my long o's playing ice hockey and headed east for a degree in art history from Williams College in the Berkshires of Massachusetts.
I failed my interview for a consulting job because I never learned to business model in my head and estimated the local pizza place Hot Tomatoes made millions of dollars a year - "Apparently we should all just work at Hot Tomatoes haha, cough" and ended up with a dual degree from the Minnesota School of Bartending and Brainco School of Advertising.
Instead of working for the Inn Kahoots bar in Hamel, Minnesota with a meat raffle every Tuesday night (it was beef, not men raffled off much to the confusion of a fellow bartending graduate), I started my advertising career at DDB Chicago on McDonald's and Bud Light and went on to work for great people at Saatchi & Saatchi, BBDO and the Wieden & Kennedy Portland office.
Until I packed my suitcase and all the porkbelly in Portland to go to Wieden & Kennedy's New York office where I've worked on almost everything here.
I'm currently the Creative Director on Duracell and The Wing. I'm also the Maternal Director of two young kids at home in Brooklyn.
