About me

Hey there. I'm an ACD at VML on the Gatorade team. I'm the creative lead on social, which just means I get to manage most of the day-to-day creative on G's twitter, instagram and facebook, when I'm not jumping in on bigger campaign work. It also means I've gotten good at spraying athletes in the face with bottles of "sweat". Outside of work, I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie. I like to race motorcycles, fly airplanes upside down, and take helicopters to the top of mountains, then snowboard down them in stupid costumes. When I'm feeling ambitious, I tap into my inner-geek to design & help build education software that helps mentors track the progress of their students.
