Hi, I'm Kyle.
(And that's my nephew, Brady. He's pretty awesome.)
I'm an art director at Ogilvy & Mather in Chicago. I graduated from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit (where I was born and raised), and I've also spent some time in New York City.
Outside of work, I like to climb mountains and snowboard down them. I play every sport that comes my way – especially hockey – and I've recently started brewing beer.
As an art director, I've been creating everything from banner ads to television commercials with 360 degree campaign tie-ins. I've worked on a wide variety of brands and produced work seen in dozens of countries around the world. As a web designer and developer, I've been creating experiences online since I was 12 years old. I started a web design company at age 15, and I continue freelancing to this day.
Fueled by a passion for learning and doing things "the right way," I aim to deliver thoughtful and entertaining work that is on-brand, and doesn't lose sight of the strategy. This approach is influenced by a history of combining the creativity of web design with the problem solving inherent to programming & web development.
