Aside from the occasional magic trick, my passions outside of advertising include skiing, lacrosse, Philadelphia sports teams, oysters, movies, and improv comedy. Improv comedy, in particular, is a big part of my life and creative process. I’m trained to say “yes” to ideas and find ways to build on them. I’ve done it on stage for over a decade and I’ve taught others this process. In advertising, this helps me generate ideas and work well in a team setting. I love finding a great joke or idea in the moment. No matter what the genre, this process helps me be a supportive and positive team member.
