What is your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement so far is my 6 month old son. But aside from his awesome- ness I would have to say winning my first global Addy award for my work with Krisy Kreme and landed Disney as a freelance client.

If you didn't do what you do, what would you do?
I’m really into crossfit and health so I would honestly probably do that full-time and

bourbon. I find the whole process amazing. The whole thing is timeless.
