A wise copywriter once said,

James is a killer ACD/art director + designer who has a vibe like a gritty-ass Midwest motorcycle shop started making RGB-studded gaming PCs. 

Not my words...but I think it checks out.

I am an ACD/Art Director with +10 years of agency experience. I hail from Chicago but recently moved to Austin from NYC. Currently, I work remote at Wunderman Thompson NY. I have a nice dog named Georgie and in my freetime like to redesign my website. Enjoy this version because it might look different the next time you come back.

THIS IS WHAT I KNOW

 I like to make things people want.  I also like to make people want things.  Sometimes, I do both. I believe that the (big) pictures are important & zat nobody reads ze words even if you write zem in a pseudo-French accent.
