I'm passionate about the intersection of sport, culture & technology and work daily to strategically solve problems in that space by way of design.
I founded the creative studio, Mtn. & Co., a visual design and strategic consultancy for sports brands such as professional & amateur teams, college athletic departments, coaches, individual athletes, lifestyle brands, consumer brands and tech startups in the sports vertical.
As chief creative officer, I both design and lead a team of trusted collaborators on art direction, visual design, typography, UX/UI, web development, photography, content creation, copywriting and more.
Throughout my 10+ year career, I've had the pleasure of working with many brands in sport or otherwise including IMG Worldwide, Nike, SLAM Magazine, 3d Lacrosse, Matt Carpenter (St. Louis Cardinals), JMI Sports, the Texas Longhorns, the Michigan Wolverines, the Kentucky Wildcats, the Tennessee Volunteers, the NCAA, the Southeastern Conference (SEC), the John Wooden Award, Jim Beam Brands, Girl Scouts of America, Toyota, Scion, Raising Canes, Smashburger and many more.
I've been fortunate to win awards from or be published in organizations or publications such as the American Advertising Federation (ADDYS), Graphic Design USA (GDUSA) magazine, Print magazine, College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA), UniWatch, SportTechie, iTunes, Adidas Group Blog and Product Hunt.
I enjoy speaking and have moderated panels, been interviewed or given talks quite a few times. Recent speaking engagements include: Major Level Creative Connect (MLC Connect), AIGA Richmond (KY), the University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Business, the Lexington Chapter of the American Advertising Federation, and the Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Kentucky.
