2016 was a very intense year. Political, emotional, the country was ever changing. This is a collection of select that directly impacted me, my life, and my art.
On a trip to Seoul, I had the unique opportunity to capture some of the sights and culture. It here that I learned the proverb, "Eat everything".
On assignment in NYC, I got a call to drive a 120lb piece of art work to D.C. and Shoot it in front of the nations capital, and the White House.
It wasn't long after arriving at Tuntland farms that I fell in love with the family, animals, and scenery. The light, timing and location were all perfect.
I have the unique honor of capturing landscapes, products and events. But on rare occasions, I get to photograph people. This is a collection of some of my favorites, but not because the images are visually striking, but because of the memories I have around the actual shoot. I have some pretty great friends.
Chris Wall was a marvel. A curmudgeon. A genius. and a dear friend to many.
In May of 2017 a memorial was held for Chris at the Ogilvy Chicago office on behalf of his Family, and Ogilvy & Mather. While we entered in sadness, we left in high spirits after hearing tales of Chris's life and work.
I had the honor of capturing the launch of Chicago's New look and feel. One Chicago. One Chicago was established in 2017 to unify all Chicagoans as one city and one voice. Chicago’s past is drawn from the vibrant diversity of its neighborhoods and historic communities. And its future will be met by furthering its legacy as a welcoming city to all who want to make Chicago their home.
A lot of this city is glitz and glam. The high-life. Metal and bricks. but there's an industrial underbelly that moved the country.
The far north. ROPA, Rogers, The North Pole, Beyond the wall. This is the neighborhood I have come to cherish, return to, and raise my child in.
Rogers Park was my home since 5, and continues to impress me. A mix of city and beach town.

In 2016, the creative team at Ogilvy Chicago set out to Elkhorn Wi. to explore, learn and grow. This once a year retreat is what we creative look forward to, challenging each other to bigger better and stronger creative, and campaigns.
