Wait, how do I not know you?

I reserved this space so I could tell you all about me. The truth is, writing a bio is a soul-sucking exercise. So, the facts are I'm a writer and an artist. I work as the Creative Director at Spherical, a top creative agency in New York. I'm based in Brooklyn, but was raised in the American South. I am a storyteller. Come, have a drink or a cup of coffee with me. I'll tell you the story of how we met in another life.
I'm represented by UTA and managed by Ellipsis Entertainment.

About

I am an author and a Creative Director.

As a full-time creative (VP of Creative Services at Spherical), I spend most days writing in the nooks and crannies of my available time. I wake up at 5:30am just to get in a few hours putting words on paper. I write on the train. I write on planes. I write waiting in lines. I feel I have to write. The reason is simple: representation.

I often tell the story of Ferris Bueller; a kid who decides to skip school and, on charm alone, steals a car, impersonates a cop, drinks underage, tampers with computers, and at every step exposes his best friends to peril, only to go home and fall asleep with his mother to kiss him into sweet dreams. I asked myself if Ferris were Trayvon Martin, how might that story end? I know the answer. So do you. And this is why representation is so important. I aim to contribute more stories into the world that diversely feature regular (but beautiful) lives made extraordinary. Art, I believe, is the only way to accomplish this. All my creative work is inspired by and aims to add to all the great work in the world.
