I'm currently the Creative Director at O'Reilly Media. Previously, I use to live the quiet, satisfied life of a kudzu farmer until the birth of the Internet. Suddenly confronted with access to cheap herbal Viagra and profligate Nigerian finance ministers, I realized a wider world was waiting to be discovered. I hightailed it away from the family farm and encountered a series of hobos from Tokyo, New York, Dublin to New Zealand - each more brand-savvy than the last - who taught me enough about design, marketing, advertising, and branding to begin my storied career. You can find me most days leading creative teams and designing projects that change everything or settin' on the porch whittlin' with my son.
