STUFF ABOUT ME
It is often said that it's more about the journey than the destination. Well, I can certainly relate to that notion. I will say that when it comes to careers, and life in general, even when you find your "destination" the journey is often far from over. I began my journey on the path toward being a chemical engineer, dabbled for a bit in the fine arts, and even briefly thought I'd live out that childhood dream of becoming a fireman. Eventually, I pulled off at the advertising off-ramp and landed at becoming a copywriter. Of course as implied, even that's been full of its own twists and turns. I've worked to promote a wide range of products through the years: water softeners, booze, video games, lots of quickly served, reasonably priced food, plenty of packaged goods and much, much more. I have most recently found working again with some familiar friends (both figuratively and literally). The worlds of quick-service restaurants and sparkling beverages have pulled me back in gain. Regardless of what spend time on during my day-to-work life, which I enjoy, I do it all for the quality time I get to spend with my family. Along with my wonderful wife, I get to hone my creativity and management skills coordinating the activities and fun times of our two kids, our dog and my live-in father.
