I am from Van Wyck, South Carolina, a quaint town outside of Charlotte affectionally known by its residents as “The Shire”. Going into college, I thought I wanted to be a politician, which is what led me to The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina—a historic and traditional institution in my favorite city on earth, Charleston. I quickly realized politics was not for me, but I was still meant to be a man of the people—and what better profession therefore than advertising? Following college, I left the splendor of the Lowcountry for graduate school at Clemson. Eventually, I followed my girlfriend, an Iowa native whom I met in Charleston, up to Des Moines. I haven’t looked back since.
I love Fall, my dog Lola, the beach, full moons, sunsets, tailgating, and outdoor activities of all kinds.

I have been to Wimbledon, The Masters, The British Open, and the finale of le Tour de France, but nothing beats a night game in Death Valley.
