Creative Director, Capital One
My life and career path has been nothing short of that. I come from humble beginnings in a tiny town of 750 people in Southern Illinois where I left to attend Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, GA, where I studied Motion Media Design. I started out freelancing and tending bar while doing odd-job animations and logo designs living in Savannah and then embarked upon my next grand adventure – Hawaii. While there, I worked for a green energy startup and a small advertising agency as Creative Director and fell in love with the job. It’s a solid mix of strategy, business, creative, and customer experience. I’ve been working in that capacity since. I’ve tried it all, from advertising to startups, a healthcare IT firm, government consulting firm and now financial services with Capital One.
