When I was 12, I visited a family friend at his job running a graphic design studio in Dayton, Ohio. And that was it. I knew then and there, that I wanted to do what he did. Solve hard problems, create beautiful, elegant solutions. Since then, I've learned a few things. How to make a stellar pitch. Why taste matters. When to push and when to back off and let an great idea rise up. How to balance my life and work. How to be a great team member.
Outside the office, I am a father of two amazing children, and husband to a very artistic wife. I 'm a committed fencer and compete regularly. I also love cycling and travel, but don't get to do enough of either. I read voraciously and, most of all, I strive to get better at most everything.
