Born and raised on the east coast, I graduated from Blair Academy in Blairstown, NJ. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies and Government from Hamilton College in Clinton, NY. I finished my postgrad studies in Art Direction at Miami Ad School in Miami Beach, Hamburg, San Francisco, and NYC.

These days I live in Los Angeles with my lovely wife Heather and our dog Charlie. I have an irrational love for the Philadelphia Eagles. I trust The Process. I spend my free time surfing.
