About Me.

I am an art director at an advertising agency called Maris, West & Baker. I live in the Jackson-Metro area, Mississippi with my wife and our two fur-babies.* I graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor of Fine Arts for graphic design with an emphasized in web design and typography. Immediately after graduation, I worked as a designer at a boutique design studio named Creative Distillery. There, I learned a lot about working as a team and exploring my skillsets. A year later, I received a job offer from MWB as an art director. I accepted and have been working closely with some of the top companies and departments in the southern region for over two years. While working on at MWB, I continue working freelance jobs in the gaming industry with Elgato Gaming and top Twitch and Youtube content creators.
