My Latest Work


After getting a degree in Art History, I did what any good Cajun would do, I immediately began working as a Roughneck on oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. When I mastered that trade I headed up to Utah to filter toxic waste sludge as a Hazardous Waste Engineer. With those kinds of dangerous jobs I figured I was almost ready for a career in Advertising. So I moved to Atlanta and began developing my creative skills at the Portfolio Center, spending off moments freelancing around town and working as a Captain in a 4-star restaurant.

All that training paid off because I?ve been lucky enough to work at some really creative places, like BBDO, Ammirati & Puris, Earle Palmer Brown and J. Walter Thompson ? on national accounts like FedEx, Pepsi, Pizza Hut, Mercedes Benz, Serta, RCA, Aetna, Weight Watchers and Gillette. You name a category, I?ve probably done something for it.

And some of my work has been recognized by Communication Arts, The One Show, The Art Director?s Club, Graphis, Lurzer?s International Archive, The Effie Awards and the prestigious Cannes festival. One campaign even made it into a College text book called ?Graphic Design Solutions?.

One of the proudest moments of my life though, was far from an ad agency. It was becoming an Eagle Scout along with my four brothers. And with them I share the approach to life, and work that?s summed up in this old Cajun sentiment, ?Laissez les bons temps rouler!? - Let the good times roll!
