I founded the creative studio, Mtn. & Co., a visual design and strategic brand consultancy for the sports & entertainment industry.
As principal & creative director, I design, develop business relationships and manage a team of trusted collaborators on art direction, visual design, typography, UX/UI, web development, photography, content creation, copywriting and more.
Sport—specifically its ability to influence culture and bridge generations—excites me. In fact, I created a podcast to capitalize on this excitement called Makers of Sport, a show about the intersection of sport and creativity.
Throughout my 10+ year career, I've had the pleasure of working with many brands in sport or otherwise including IMG Worldwide, PGA Tour, Kansas City Chiefs, 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 on podcasts or given a few talks. Recent speaking engagements include: Major Level Creative Connect, AIGA Richmond, the University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Business and College of Art & Visual Studies, the Lexington Chapter of the American Advertising Federation, and the Von Allmen Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Kentucky.
Occasionally, I write stuff.
