I was born and raised on the Canadian prairies. I studied Anthropology at the University of Western Ontario before ditching the bones in favor of a career in creative advertising. Prior to joining Chiat\Day in Los Angeles, I had the pleasure of working on some of the best international clients at top creative agencies, including Creature, BBDO, DDB, and Rethink.

I race bicycles, I take photos, I develop my own film, I'm writing a comic book, I fix motorcycles, I race rickshaws in India, I blog Fast Food Fights.

My beautiful wife is a talented Strategist. We live on the best coast. Our dog is named Scout. Life is great.
