Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem ei est.

I want brands to serve people in more meaningful ways. I was lucky enough to spend my twenties and thirties at some of the world’s most innovative advertising agencies, helping Fortune 500 companies do things people actually enjoyed. This year I turned 40, experienced some mid-life clarity, and instead of buying the fully restored 1978 Trans Am I’ve been wanting my entire life… I started a business with some friends. A marketing consultancy and research firm of sorts. We mesh the passion-clustering goodness that is data science with the ability to distill chaos, and tell a great story (strategy people actually want to use). This is more interesting: I’m a father of two, but I look like a middle-aged virgin.
