In 1993 I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – River Falls as a Broad Area Art Major, with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I played basketball and ran track while at UWRF, qualifying for the Division III Nationals in the high jump. I freelanced in River Falls for a few months before moving back to Milwaukee to work at William Eisner & Associates. Having worked at Eisner for three years, I took a job as Art Director at Cramer-Krasselt in Milwaukee, May of 1997. In 2000 I was promoted to Senior Art Director, and then Associate Creative Director in 2009. Currently I’m the acting Creative Director on Floresheim, Stacy Adams, Nunn Bush and Kohls. Though art has been my primary focus, over the years I’ve honed my skills as a writer, most recently finishing my first feature screenplay.
