Imagine a world without oatmeal.

That was reality before my great grandfather rebranded oats from exclusively horse food to household staple. To do this, he wrote ads and invented the cereal box, mail in prize promotions and train billboards, and created the first brand recognized around the world: Quaker Oats.

I’m now the 4th generation of advertising creative, and it’s fair to say advertising runs in my veins. My passion for new, boundary pushing ideas, like my great grandfather, is what gets me up in the morning and drives me to never stop learning and thinking.
