Hello! I'm a copywriter-designer hybrid, hungry to design with words

Before advertising, I crawled into industrial ovens on the factory floor assembling car parts. You might be familiar with my work. Matthew McConaughey famously rubbed the Lincoln MKZ interior and marveled at my craftsmanship. Nobody makes GH3500s and H3-68b substrates with the ebony polyurethane clearcoat like I do. 

Paradoxically, I'm also a big nerd with a game incubator called Explorers. That's my creative label for teaching game theory (the math kind) and game design theory (the fun kind) while experimenting with verbal design systems. 

Either way, you'll feel hip and refined next to me at happy hour.

My resume is here.
