I was born and raised in the Atlanta area, and have lived here almost my entire life. I believe in knowing the rules. And breaking them on occasion. I am phenomenally driven to learn new things and to put that knowledge to good use. My work ethic: harder and smarter. I’m all about seeing the big picture, developing strategy and acting on what matters. Whatever I’m committed to, I am committed to—faith, family, friends, career. I am passionate about helping others.
Sweet Home Atlanta
Experience has taught me that it’s wise to maintain an even keel regardless of the situation, that there is always something to be thankful for, and that an attitude of gratitude will carry you a long way in life. Speaking of gratitude, I am extraordinarily grateful for the opportunities and experiences I’ve had so far. It’s been my privilege to work with and learn from many amazing people in companies ranging from small local businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

My headphones are never far away. If they’re on, I’m in the groove, perhaps coding and designing a logo or website.
There’s almost certainly a longboard in my car. It doesn’t get ridden nearly enough.
Avid reader, time permitting. I find the most fascinating images are in novels (especially the classics) that have no images. Poor writing or editing drives me nuts. Especially if it’s mine.
Somewhat of a healthy food enthusiast, but I do love me some good BBQ. Yes. I am from the south.
Huge Atlanta Braves fan. Quite saddened by the loss of Hank Aaron and Don Sutton, two of my all-time favorites.
Somewhere at the bottom of this website you’ll find my personal brand tagline: “Fluid with words. Passionate about design. Serious about strategy.”TM I have used this continually since 2004.
Bonus Points Here’s one more insight into who I am. I’ve done my fair share of personality profile tests. Some are weird, some are insightful. One that really resonated with me is the Myers-Briggs assessment. You provide honest answers to a long series of questions and are given one of 16 different personality ‘types.’ Despite having done this several times over the years, my type has remained the same. When you read the description of your personality type, it’s usually spot on. So much so that you’re likely to say, ‘that’s creepy.’ And it is. However it’s actually quite helpful in better understanding others—and yourself. Knowing what motivates people always leads to better relationships. Me? INTJ all the way.
