While art direction is pretty straight forward, content creation seems to mean something different depending on who you ask. In my case, I’ve got a background in photography, videography, editing, and production.

I believe in multidisciplinary creativity and find the best results come from collaboration, curiosity, and an overwhelming desire to make things happen.

Aside from making ads, I’m dedicated to learning how to live more sustainably and have created a blog called ‘Choosing Earth’ to house my eco-friendly discoveries. Check out @choosingearth on Instagram too!
