My pops was a Navy Pilot, so from a young age I had traveled most of the country, and learned to make new friends quick. I picked up the Upright Bass in fourth grade and never looked back — something about jazz seemed rebellious to me and I loved it.
I earned the rank of Eagle Scout as a youth, and hiked over 600 miles during my time in Scouting. Since then I've summited Mt. Hood, sailed the Florida Keys, canoed the Boundary Waters in Canada, and hiked the New Mexico high-desert. In college, I gave my summers to youth by developing and leading a leadership and skills program that has since been adopted by other youth programs across the country.
Tommy and I partnered in college and headed to the big city after our graduation in 2016. We've been here ever since and have worked at SS+K, McCann, and Johannes Leonardo, where we currently work.
