Listen. Think. Do the work.

Welcome to Happicamp

For the past seven years, I’ve been a Creative Director. More specifically, a Creative Director for Vox Media: a digital-first media organization that reaches ~130 million humans every month. 

My role with Vox Media was a fusion of many disciplines I’ve developed over the years: illustration, photography, art direction, editorial design, writing (both features and taglines), videography, voiceover, and creative strategy.

This toolkit allowed me to become intimate with the execution behind telling vibrant, authentic, visually-oriented stories across disparate platforms. It's like making a flipbook from multiple pictures that morph into a single, living image.

Now, I’ve started a new chapter. It’s called Happicamp and it’s a full-service creative consultancy.

My mission with Happicamp is simple: to collaborate with brands that seek to engage massive audiences across multiple platforms. My passion is the intersection between storytelling and strategy. Once you’ve seen it manifest, it might become your passion, too.

Right now, I’m working with a storied family business in Tennessee making chef-quality cookware, artisans in Chicago who over-engineer handcrafted bags and dreamers in Switzerland who build zero-emission hydrofoil boats.

If you'd like to talk, I'm here to listen, think, and do the work.
