Friends I've Worked With

New Project!

It's been a long time since I last updated. I've been art directing up a storm at Y&R Chicago, navigating another new living situation and pondering the feasibility of hibernating during Chicago winters. Since Spring is now, well, springing, I've got a wild hare to start something completely different.

My friend Christi and I are collaborating on a cookbook called Baked with Hate: Funneling Your Aggression Into Tasty Treats (working title). Stay tuned for sneak previews of our intrepid culinary/self-publishing adventures.

Somehow I earned a reputation for being a music maven while in school. While I think this might be a little overblown, I do love music and I do love sharing. Check back on Mondays for a mix or track that's made it's way onto my radar.

Today I'm serving up a heaping helping of folk-inspired tunes in honor of being back in the Midwest – where the living is simple and roots are strong.
